Bank Holiday Discount & Knitted Bracelet Anyone?

I found some lovely knitting pattern books at the charity shop this weekend.

Some of the 'must makes'
 


 
I will be knitting this sometime, a country cottage bag!
These books had lots of lovely ideas and patterns in and itching to make something I jumped in and knitted this little bracelet, or 'Artisan Cuff' as it was referred to in the book:


Lots of cable and little needles = time consuming, but I enjoyed making it.  I changed the pattern as I thought it would be a right faff to have to fasten cords each time you wear it, so I extended the pattern a bit to make it longer and added a crochet loop and button fastening.  Made in super soft baby cashmere dk.



I added little shell buttons to the cable spaces to finish it off.

I can see more of these coming on, I want to try a few different colours and button/bead combinations.

As we are on the cusp of another wonderful Bank Holiday Weekend ~ I want to spread the Bank Holiday Love and as such I'm offering a
 in my little Folksy Shop from now until midnight on Monday.


You don't have to do anything at all, each and every purchase (including the postage cost) will be refunded 15% through Paypal ~ as folsky does not allow for discount codes.

If you were thinking of snaffling anything up, now might be a good time.

~ ♥ Back Soon ♥ ~

I like your version better - I have a hard enough time fastening bracelets without having to worry about tying one :)

I have that Louisa Harding pattern book, it's gorgeous. Her knits are always so well written and easy to follow. xx

You amaze me Kandi - I'd have procrastinated over that little cuff for weeks! And yeah, who designed a wrist accessory which you need two hands to tie?!

Alex said...

Ooh that's fab! As usual, I bow down in awe at your superior knitting skills. I really must pick up my needles again soon. Maybe one day I'll progress beyond squares.
