Recycled Plastic Bottle Cable Knit Bracelet
By Zylo @ Fan of Stuff on May 12, 2014
So here’s the scoop. My mom drinks damn near everything from a single serving bottle and they don’t recycle. It drives me nuts! So I’ve been hoarding them in bags and stashing them in my closet. While there are a lot of really great plastic bottle DIYs, a lot of them aren’t practical for my space or really my style.
I had to really think about what I wanted to try with them. As I was examining the tiny Coke bottles that dominate my stash, I noticed that they have one perfect smooth band in the center. That’s kind of perfect for a bracelet base, says I. The plastic gives a sturdy base for the cable pattern while also lending it a natural curve. I love chunky bracelets but hate the noise. I also love wearing jewelry, but not when it gets cold against my skin. Bingo! This uses all recycled materials and is a great way to use up that stash yarn you've got sitting around! Happy recycling.
