This week we want to show you some advance techniques just to get those creative juices flowing…possibilities abound!
Those who have seen this Pink and Gray Necklace and Bracelet set at some of our shows have picked it out as a favorite.
The necklace was done by combining monofilament and pink metallic yarn.
Here is the recipe:
String 175 beads on the monofilament only. We used Beadalon SuppleMax
Use the 5 pegs and with both the fibers make enough rounds to drop one side of the necklace to 4” or the length you desire; then cast-off only the yarn.
Drop a bead between each peg, every round until all beads are knitted.
To add the yarn back in; feed it down through the center of the French Knitter and begin knitting again with both fibers.
Add a ribbon finding and a closure.
String 204 beads on the yarn.
Use the 6 pegs and place a bead between each peg, every row until all beads are knitted.
After casting-off remove the bracelet from the French knitter.
Thread the beginning string using a large blunt Darning Needle, and open the cast-off end.
Insert the needle through the center of
the tube and out through the open end.
Turn the bracelet inside out.
The same process of the necklace was done on this stunning Black and Silver Necklace…a purchased pendant was added.
Who knew French Knitting (Spool Knitting) could be so glamorous?!
