Upcoming Bead-Knit Bracelet Class

Morticia's Cuff is a design whose pattern write-up will possibly be finished this weekend. The pattern instructions need to be finished because I am giving a class in making this very bracelet on March 8.

The bracelet is made with size 000 knitting needles using size FF bead nylon and size 11 seed beads. It's finished with a magnetic tube clasp. It is fun to make and is a great introduction to seed bead knitting.

For anyone in Portland, Oregon, who might want to join the class, it will be held at Dava Bead and Trade at 2121 NE Broadway on Sunday March 8. See the Dava Bead website for more details. The knitting skill level is advanced beginner or early intermediate. Only basic stitches are used. It is helpful if you have previous knitting experience using size 2 or smaller knitting needles.

Here is another sample in a different color.

I'd love to see you in the class next month, but if you live out-of-town you will soon be able to buy a kit from my Etsy store to make a Morticia Cuff of your own.
