Those pesky leftovers

While rushing around collecting yarny goodies for the GLYC folks, I came across a conundrum: what to do with mini skeins of yarn? That is, what to do with them if you aren't hoarding hexipuffs...

These little beauties knit up super fast using tiny amounts of yarn (at most 30 yds), and are the perfect quick easy gift. Because Christmas is coming...

Les Petits Bracelets - $3.00

Pattern includes all three bracelet patterns, with charts.

Skills needed: knitting, purling, yarn overs, decreases.
Gauge: 12 (13.5, 12.5) sts per 1 in/2.5 cm after blocking, in pattern.
Final measurements: 0.75 (1.5, 2) in/2 (4, 5) cm wide, length as desired.
