This jewelry pattern utilizes my ABACUS bead knitting technique, the basic instructions for which are included, with photos, in every project pattern. Both knitting needles and a small steel crochet hook (for adding the beads to knitted stitches) are used to work this technique.

This is the Every Day version. It is also available in a Special Occasion version.

Because beaded rows are much taller than plain knitted rows, row gauge, although given, is not a meaningful or useful measurement.

If you are a loose knitter, you may prefer to drop down a knitting needle size to a US #1 (2.25mm)

Also required is a “Big Eye” beading needle. A Materials Kit to make this project is also available online for purchase.
