No-Sew Braided Yarn Napkin Rings

napkin rings-3007

These braided yarn napkin rings are one of those projects that had no plan until I was playing with yarn and boom! I happened upon a project I love. In fact, I had planned pressed metal, copper  napkin rings (also very pretty – will show later!). But, I’ve been arm knitting with this gorgeous 100% wool Merino yarn from Manuosh and my brain must have worked out these little diddys without my realizing it.

I love napkin rings and these are especially endearing because of the introduction of fiber to the table.  I love the idea of the softness among the solidity of ceramic plates and rigid table. Also, you can’t argue with the pretty peach.

If you notice the beautiful embroidered monogram, great eyes!  I planned on showing you the yarn napkin ring tute today and the instructions for the embroidered napkins tomorrow.

I love that the yarn napkin rings don’t require any sewing at all. It is just a matter of some simple braids and folding.  All you need is a little bit of yarn – the thicker the better.  If you don’t have big fluffy wool, just use multiple strands of a thinner yarn.
