I've had a little secret up my sleeve... and it's finally time to share it with you! Last spring Patternworks asked me to do an exclusive Bi-Monthly Knit Jewelry Kit Club with them.
The Club runs every other month for one year, and has 6 shipments. Designs range from necklaces, and bracelets to earrings and maybe another accessory goodie! These are brand new patterns... ones that have never been seen before and I am in LOVE with them! The first two (January and March's shipments) have been released to give you an idea of what is in store should you sign up.... want to see?
January's Kit: Cheerio
Cheerio is a short row shaped necklace that incorporates three kinds of beads, Czech Glass Donuts (aka Cheerios), size 8 seed beads, and matte triangular seed beads. I found the cheerios when I was in Canada last spring and played with them all summer long to find the perfect way to incorporate them into a necklace.... the teens that work with me decided that this design is decidedly tribal, and we love it!
March's Kit: Stereo Cuff
Stereo Cuff is a new style of jewelry for me, one that plays even more with color. The fabric of the cuff is more bead than yarn, and I love the end result. It has a substance and weight that feels just perfect on the wrist. Beads are prestrung and then just slipped up in between stitches. This is not a new technique for my designs, but definitely a new look!
Video tutorials are included in both of these patterns for any techniques that you haven't yet tried.... so don't be worried that these new patterns will be too tricksy.... they won't be!
These designs and kits are exclusive to Patternworks for a limited time and supplies are finite... the only way to get them NOW is sign up for the club! Go here to read all the details, and sign up! If you have any questions feel free to ask them here, that way every one can benefit from the answers!
Now that the cat is out of the bag I get to wear these two designs... WOOT!
