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 Special Occasion version. It is also available in an Every Day 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.
