knit beaded bracelet

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am pleased with the results considering I have not knit with beads before. What advice would you give someone starting this project? make sure the beads can slip easily over a small tapestry needle , and use floss that is polyester .. I used 1 package of DMC for each bracelet.

What you will need

  • embroidery floss
  • glass beads
  • sz 1 knitting needles
  • toggle clasp

If you scroll down you can see that I did refer Leslieanne Beller's booklet as a guide to beaded bracelets. I am happy to give the credit of where I learned to knit with beads to that booklet. Thanks for the update on her upcoming books.. I continue to enjoy this aspect of my knitting.
