New Pattern: Lapis Cuff

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.

Materials Needed:

50-60 yards fingering weight yarn

Cable needle

Size 12/1.00mm crochet hook

100-120 size 6/0 beads

Tapestry needle to weave in ends

Three ½” buttons

Skills Needed:

ability to read a chart


placing beads onto stitches with a small crochet hook
