Forzo Cuff: Next Patternworks Kit Club Design!

Well, it's the end of September already, which means the 5th kit in the Patternworks Knit Jewelry Kit Club shipped and I can tell you all about it!

Forzo Cuff

Forzo Cuff is a lace cuff designed to give you SUPER POWERS (Forzo means power in Latin).  Forzo Cuff incorporates double sided lace (the stitch is both charted and written out), prestrung beads that are worked onto yarnovers, placed beads (with Super Floss), and attached i-cord. You are sure to learn while knitting this cuff!  The pattern has video tutorials to teach you the techniques you aren't comfortable with.  I used a new-to-me lace yarn with this design, Fiesta Yarn's Ballerina, and will plan to use it for a future shawl... one of the things I love about this club is that it gets small amounts of really lovely yarns onto knitter's needles!
