New Release: Ribband Kits

I've been waiting for the new year to release my latest kit! 
New Ribband Kits!
One of my most popular patterns from Adorn, customers and store owners have been asking me to make them a kit for Ribband since last spring.  I spent a long time pondering the perfect yarn and bead combinations for it and finally came up with a combination I adore.  The kit uses Alpaca with a Twist Fino (an alpaca/silk laceweight) with a combination of size 8 glass seed beads, gorgeous Czech glass crystal beads, a simple s-hook clasp. 
Ribband Kit Black
Ribband, a versatile knitted jewelry piece, is a 32 inch long beaded strand that can be worn as both a multi-looped bracelet or a necklace. Based on 4 stitches of knitting and a 2-row repeat this is knitted beaded jewelry at it’s easiest!

The kit is packaged in a perfectly sized organza drawstring pouch that can be used as gift packaging once you finish your necklace and it contains everything you need to make Ribband except the needles. 

You can read more about it's details and get one for yourself here or at your Local Yarn Shop.  Kits have been shipping out to stores around the country since Monday... this week has definitely started out with a bang!

  1. WooHoo! I'm so excited :) I love Ribband but haven't gotten it together to buy the beads & yarn so a kit is perfect.

  2. I bought the kit through Craftys offer as I really wanted to learn how to make beaded knitted jewellery and thought Ribband looked ideal.
    However I tried to work out how to knit those 4 rows for over 2 weeks and nearly drove myself insane. I just couldn't do it! Threading the beads onto the yarn is easy peasy but that's as far as I got. I eventually gave up and made a beaded necklace instead which is really pretty so the yarn and beads didn't go to waste. It still bugs me though that I couldn't work out to knit the Ribband. I consider myself a good beginner level, I have done scarves, hats, fingerless gloves, a cushion and am onto my first jumper. I can read the knit abreviations but it just wouldn't work out right and I couldn't figure out how to get the bead pushed onto the next stitch. Please Laura have you any ideas? Would it be to do with being a UK knitter and not US or something?
