Compliment the Art Deco Beaded Scarf with these fun-loving wristers and add sparkle to any outfit, anytime. They simply stretch and slide over your hand on top of a sweater or top. Wouldn't they look cute peeking out from under a jacket sleeve? The wrist cuffs are knit with beads placed in a graduated order from the bottom up. They are reversible, displaying a different look on each side. The yarn used in this sample (pink) is Madeline Tosh Sport, which is a smooth strand that hugs the beads. Many smooth stranded DK weight yarns will work with this pattern. As long as the beads can slide easily along the strand, feel free to try a variety of fibers. They are knit in the round with four, size 7 double pointed needles. The pictured pairs of wristers are 5" in circumference x 7" long, which will stretch to fit a women's Med./Lg. size wrist. They may be knit to a bit more length by continuing the pattern I used 1098 TOHO seed beads, size 6/0 for the pair. The color is silver lined peridot matte for the green mitts. The pink ones use TOHO 6/0 rainbow coated crystal beads. The pattern is written for three woman's sizes: small, medium/large and extra large. Approximately 600 size 6/0 TOHO seed beads for EACH wrister are prestrung using a dental floss threader, before knitting the project. This is a helpful U-Tube video for stringing beads onto the yarn using a dental floss threader: [][2] I prefer to use a fleece mat on a flat table surface. Fleece fabric may be purchased at any fabric store and cut a small square to use for beading. Have fun selecting just the right yarn and bead combination. My lovely test knitter friends have reported back to me that the pattern is a GO. Thank you so much Susan and Wendy for your kindness. Thank you for your interest! Please enjoy!

Hi! I'm Diane L. Augustin and I am Yarn Happy - Bead Happy I teach knitting, crocheting and Tunisian crochet classes at several yarn shops and art centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/St. Croix Valley area. One of my passions is knitting and crocheting with beads. I also manage the daily activities and teach classes at ThunderWillow Community Arts in Hudson, WI. I have classes at Ramsay County and Hudson libraries, as well as through Hudson Community Education. I often conduct workshops and demonstrations at special events and festivals in the area. I have been teaching professionally for seven years. My background as a graphic artist in the publishing industry facilitates my ability to design, write, produce and publish my patterns. I am also the photographer. I continuously develop new designs, offering them as classes, with a focus on teaching techniques. I learned to knit continental or combination style at seven years old from my grandmother, who had to teach me in order to get her own knitting back from me! I live in western WI, just outside of Hudson, with my husband, Lance and the boss of the household, Thomas Edison, our stray kitty who came to stay. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy! I hope my designs will become your favorites. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy! My pattern was published in the newly released book, [North Shore Knits][2], produced by [Three Irish Girls][3]. The book is composed of patterns by local designers, inspired by the fantastic new color ways created by Three Irish Girls. My designs are also published in the [Knitting: 100+ Patterns Throughout the Year: 2013-2017 Day-to-Day Calendars][4] as well as [Crochet: 100+ Patterns Throughout the Year: 2013-2017 Day-to-Day Calendars][5].
