Knitting with Beads - Easy Cuff Bracelet

Knitting with Beads - Easy Cuff Bracelet

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on and off
  • knit (garter stitch)
  • yarn over
  • knit 2 together

Pattern Description:

How can you incorporate sparkle and add dimension to knitting? Knitted fabric is usually flat, and the word 'bling' does not come up very often to describe it.

I have taught myself many craft techniques through the years, but knitting with beads was different. It didn't come easily. It took a long time. There were supporting techniques that had to be figured out. And there was a deadline - I had to teach a workshop in knitting with beads - and that deadline was fast approaching.

For anyone who has thought about learning to knit with beads, the Knitting with Beads - Cuff Bracelet is a combination pattern and tutorial. Time to take those first steps into a technique that can quickly become addictive, and add a touch of bling to your knitting.

KNIT ON!
