Off the Needles: Still More Beaded Wristlets

More beaded wristlets. Knitting these can be quite addictive!

The red wristlets are knitted in Sensations "Bamboo & Ewe," a superfine blend of 55% wool, 30% nylon, and 15% rayon from bamboo. The beads are Japanese size 8/0 in matte black. The bead pattern is a Fair Isle pattern from Knitting in the Old Way by Priscilla A. Gibson-Roberts and Deborah Robson (Nomad Press, 2004, p. 166).

The cream wristlets are knitted out of  Patons "Pearl Twist" in 80% acrylic and 20% nylon, the same yarn I used in the wristlet with pink beads. The beads are Japanese in size 8/0, in Dark Caribbean blue. The bead pattern is "Border 1" from Scandinavian Knitting Designs by Pauline Chatterton (Scribners, 1977, p. 123).
