I got minorly stuck on my Leaflet cardigan and need to study the pattern more closely. Not really having time to do that, I picked up another Laura Nelkin beaded jewelry project, instead. See? Pretty!
This is the Ribband pattern, which is simple but versatile. You can wear it as a single-stranded long necklace or a double-stranded necklace (I don’t have photos of these because I was taking photos myself). Or, you can wrap it around your wrist 4-5 times for a fun cuff, which is how I wore it:
Ribband is written for two yarn weights. You can use laceweight yarn and size 8 beads (that’s what I did), or fingering weight yarn with size 6 beads. This yarn is left over from the Color Affection shawl I made this summer.
The strand is closed with a simple toggle clasp, which you can see here.
I know someone is going to ask me how long the strand is - it's 33.5".
This only took me two days to complete. Holiday knitting, people! Lay in a supply of beads!!!
