Back in stock, after waaaaaay too long away.
Different from our other Bead Stew and Bead Soup creations, this one has you thread the beads in a particular order before you start to knit. The result is a very pleasing pattern on a soft and subtle cuff bracelet.
The thread will be either silver or pale green. We found that the usual 10m spool is just a bit too low in length to comfortably do this cuff --- each kit will include a spool that is 20 meters, well more than you will need.
This kit also includes some of the highest quality of the Miyuki beads -- the 4x4 Cubes in Metallic Dark Green Iris, the 6/0s in Matte Metallic Khaki Iris, and the 8/0s in Duracoat Silver Lined Willow.
It requires about 100 of each type of bead for the finished bracelet shown here.
This cuff is based around eleven stitches -- there 10 beads across each row and so each row has the beads offset from the row above and below. As you see, it is quite a substantial cuff bracelet.
The result is such a delightfully supple piece. Mine measures a slightly stretchy 5 1/2" x 1 3/4" before the clasp is added -- which gives an extra 1" to 2" in length, and you will have enough yarn and beads to make yours larger if you so choose.
The clasp you will get with your kit will likely be different than the one you see here though still a toggle style in silvertone. (We have a very limited number of these three-ring clasps.)
Interestingly it has a different feel from all the other bracelets we've done with the same thread. And it looks so good on the wrist!
The kit will include the beads, the thread, and a toggle clasp. The knitting needles are not included -- we used size 0s.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern and cost of the pattern has not been added to the cost of the kit. We offer three options:
I know some knitters might already have this --- in that case, 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 via email, 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.
