|1896 Beaded Cuffs to Knit by Carol Huebscher Rhoades, Piecework July/Aug 2013|
The pattern calls for stringing 418 beads on to the yarn for the first cuff or wristlet. I thought it would take forever, but it didn't...only about 30 min. In fact the beads went on very quickly and move across this sock yarn (Wildfoote in Master Grey) so smoothly.
These beaded cuffs are knit flat (I decided to go up to size 1 needles), and then the edges will be joined with the Kitchener stitch, picking up stitches along the (left) cast-on edge to create live stitches on both ends. I've just completed the top half of the piece and have started repeating the pattern for the under-side. Another fun knit!
