Ribband, a versatile knitted jewelry piece, is a 32 inch long beaded strand that can be worn as both a multi-looped bracelet or a necklace. Based on a simple 4-stitch, 2-row repeat , it only needs 15 yards of fingering or lace weight yarn. Ribband can be worn as a necklace, or a cuff, and is perfect for throwing on with a t-shirt and jeans as we head into the warmer months.
Look at your yarn scraps... you are sure to have a little bit of the perfect something to use! Then the fun begins: you'll need a simple toggle clasp and beads to match your yarn... look in your bead stash, and if you don't have one, it's time to head to the bead store and start one! You will notice that all three of the versions shown look VERY different from each other. This is all caused by the yarn and beads chosen. I also have KITS available in my Etsy shop.

Laura Nelkin lives in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Though she has a degree in apparel design, she took to knitting years ago and hasn't looked back since. Laura is currently enamored with lace, and with incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of her designs lean in this direction. She travels often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country. Her designs have been featured in a number of online publications, including Interweave, Knitty.com, Schaefer Yarn Co. and Creative Knitting. Her new book, Knockout Knits, will be released in September 2014.View all patterns by designer (27) »
