Soutache Set is based on four strands of beaded i-cord that are braided together. This easy elegant set will allow you use up a bit of luxury yarn OR your leftover sock yarn and get you building a bead stash as each i-cord strand has a different color bead on it. A video tutorial is included for working the beaded i-cord stitch making this a great first beading project. Soutache reminds me of the sailor rope bracelets my brother and I used to get as kids that we would wear ALL summer long... but it's a bit more refined, don't you think?
When I knit Soutache Set for Creative Knitting I used some Madeline Tosh Sock I had from another project. When I went to knit a few other versions (anybody noticed that I'm not very good at just making one of my designs?) I went stash diving!
You can already see other versions of Soutache on Ravelry... I love seeing what yarn and bead combo everyone has chosen! You can purchase Soutache here, on or Ravelry here.
