My new pattern is published!

Weimar are beaded cuffs in two versions, with picot hem and overlapping, short-row shaped cuff worked back and forth, which is then joined and worked in the round. Very little sewing, just the overlap at the cuff.

The beads are applied as you go (with crochet hook or wire), except for the beads in the picot hem for version B (black) which are threaded.

Intermediate to advanced knitters.
Skills: k, p, provisional CO + closing hem, beading, m1r and l, short rows (only a few wraps to lift, good for short-row beginners).

Picture tutorial for the beading in the picot hem for version B (black).

Cuffs Version A (red), colourway: 3609.
Cuffs Version B (black), colourway: 8903.

Gauge 27 sts and 34 rows x 10 cm (4”) in St st in the rnd, with
