Cable Wristers with LEDs


For anyone who’s been wanting to experiment with wearable electronics, but is feeling intimidated by the electronics part, this Cable Wristers with LEDs project shared by Danielle Holke of Knithacker is a great example of how simple and elegant a wearable electronics project can be.

After knitting a pair of wristers based on Mindy Lewis’ Grace Cable Boot Cuffs pattern, Holke decided that the project was missing something and decided to try integrating a string of LED lights that she found on Amazon. They ended up fitting perfectly to give the project an extraordinary end result.
