LAKESIDE - JEWELLERY KNITTING KIT
DUALITY CHOKER/BRACELET KNITTING KIT
Inspired by artist Mary Cassatt, and her work 'Summertime'. An american artist in the impressionism era, Cassatt created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children.
This kit conjures up boating in gentle green waters, hazy summer days, floating flowers & secret conversation.
This design follows the old rule of thumb, ‘twice around the wrist, once around the neck’, so that once knitted to your measurements, it can be worn as a bracelet or a choker. It’s a straight piece of knitting on 4sts with regular knitting needles, so is perfect as a starter project for those wanting to experience knitting with wire.
The Mary Cassatt inspired kit comes supplied in a gorgeous silver gift bag and contains:
* 60 x genuine Swarovski® crystal beads in a painter's palette mix of smoked-topaz, nude, pale-peridot, opal-peridot & clear.
* 0.25mm warm brown-enamelled copper jewellery wire
* Necklace/bracelet chain and lobster fastener in rose-gold plated finish
* Full pattern instructions
All you will need to have yourself is 2.25mm knitting needles and a sewing needle.
The pattern uses garter stitch throughout, and is suitable for an intermediate knitter.
This makes a perfect gift for knitters who are looking for something different and eye-catching to make.
