Knit your own Simple Beaded Wristlets & Sock-Not Cuffs using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
Four easy styles of beaded-garter cuffs that give you the freedom to explore a myriad of color and bead placement combinations.
These cuffs can be worn on your wrists as mitts, pulse warmers or bracelets; and on ankles as a dress-up over plain socks. A single cuff also makes a chic holder around your water bottle, serves as an eye-catching coffee cup cozy, or as a dress-up to any other place that begs to be cuddled by yarn and glint of beads.
The basic knit stitch and an easy beading technique make these simple and fun for anyone to make.
The garter stitch fabric in these beaded cuffs is stretchy and can accommodate a range of sizes. Adult medium, 75 - 100 yards fingering weight yarn per pair, 7 ½ stitches/inch over garter stitch, size US 1 - 2 / 2.25 - 2.75 mm needles suggested, size 8/0 seed beads. Shown in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn and Miyuki beads. Written stitch instructions.
