Beaded Bangle

from By Hand, With Heart
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Beaded Bangle
Beaded Bangle
Beaded Bangle

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • understanding of working YOs, ssk, k2tog,
  • understanding of how to work i-cord while you knit

Pattern Description:

I designed this lovely bracelet for a workshop at my LYS. It's a great beginner-bead-knitting project as the design is easily remembered and worked and yet yields such wonderful results!

A beaded bangle ... made to measure .. would be gorgeous for a wedding or even a fun bit of bling.

You'll need 64 size 8/0 beads to coordinate with the yarn chosen. You'll also need two 3/8-inch buttons to close the bracelet. DPNs (rather than longer straights or circs) seem to work best for this design as you won't be casting-on many sts and you'll be turning frequently.

The pattern includes a mock cable which sets the beads nicely, and a edging of i-cord that you work with the design. Gorgeous!

The directions are both charted and knitted.
