Aquitaine Beaded Cuffs with Sivia Harding
This class is a virtual cornucopia of beaded knitting techniques. Aquitaine is an elegant mitt with a heavily beaded hand covering (but no thumb) and a slim, ribbed cuff that can be wrist or elbow length. Up to three different kinds of seed beads may be used to embellish the stitches in the pattern. Students will come away with much bead know-how and the skills to make this darling pair of mitts.
_At least 120 yds #1 (fingering-weight) yarn in a lighter shade of solid or semi-solid (yarns that split such as bamboo or bamboo blends are not suitable) _2.25mm/US 1 set of 4 double pointed needles, 2 circular needles or 1 long
_Size 6/0 beads ( Color A, 118 beads; Color B, 30 beads)
_Threader such as dental floss threader (from drug store), wire needle, or big eye bead needle
_0.7mm/US 14 crochet hook.
Using outside strand of ball (not center pull strand), string 19 beads onto the yarn. You may use one color or mix it up for 'surprises.'
