Wire Knitted Napkin Ring Holders

After my try at knitting with wire and making a knitted wire bracelet – I wanted to do more.  I decided next to try and make some wire knitted napkin rings.  I needed a heavier wire and smaller knitting needles -I wanted them to hold their shape when a napkin was not inside.  It was a little more difficult working with a thicker wire and took longer – but I really liked the results!

Wire Knitted Napkin Rings

Items Needed

Beading Wire (gauge 28)
Size 4 Metal Knitting needles

1. String you beads onto the wire.

2. Cast on 8 stitches.  Make a slip knot and place on your knitting needle.  Then cast on using the Thumb method.

Row 1 & 2: Knit

Row 3:  is where I started using my beads and making a pattern.  K4, bring a bead up, K4.  The bead, depending on the size with either lay above the knitting or in the loop between the two stitches.

Row 4: knit

Row 5: K2, bring bead up, K4, bring bead up, K2

Row 6: Knit

Repeat Rows 3 – 6 to create this pattern or create your own pattern.

When the piece measures a little over 5 inches, end with two knit rows and then bind off.

Weave in the wire on both the cast on and bide off sides.  Slip over a napkin and there you go.

I LOVE these!!
