Summer is still definitely here, so small and lightweight knitting projects are in order. I have a fascination with cables and beads, so I decided to create a quick-knit pattern that used both. Worked in a beaded eyelet and cable pattern, Lapis Cuff is an elegant accessory perfect for using up leftover fingering weight yarn. If you want to try incorporating beads into your knitting but find a beaded shawl too daunting, this project would be a great way to try it out.
50-60 yards fingering weight yarn
