We are very pleased with these combinations of thread and beads to knit for our Bead Soup bracelet. I find these tremendous fun to make -- fast and interesting -- and they get great responses when I wear them. The knitter randomly picks out beads to string on metallic thread (100% polyester) -- the beads being of a great variety of sizes and shapes for an interesting and rich result.
The red one is on red, silver, or black thread (if you have a preference, let us know. Otherwise, we will pick for you), with beads of all sizes, shapes and finishes in red, black, and crystal. The toggle clasp is silver.
The blue is done on silver or blue thread (ditto to the above -- let us know if you have a preference), with beads of all kinds of blues, from the ocean to the sky and the flowers in between. The toggle clasp is also silver. (Again, unless you request differently. Feel free to add your personal taste.)
Each kit includes the beads, the thread and the toggle clasp.
The pattern is the same as for all of the Bead Soup and Bead Stew Bracelets -- you have the option to get it or not via the drop-down menu.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern. We offer three options. I know some of you might already have made other bracelets from us that are made along the same lines, the only real changes being the beads and the colors. If you feel you do not need another pattern, simply choose "No Pattern Needed."
If you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.
We also can email the pattern to you, though I have to do it manually and usually send it right before I mail the kit (please be patient). Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
Figure on size 0 needles though gauge is not an important factor here.
