This pattern gives the instructions specifically for both styles as the stitches change slightly from one style to the other. You will need to know how to pick up stitches and knit on double pointed needles to make the cuff. That may sound intimidating, but really isn't very difficult. Knitting on double pointed needles is the same as regular knitting needles but you don't need to flip your knitting over as you are working around in a circle. If you're not sure of how to pick up stitches, I have videos demonstrating this technique and many of the other stitches required on my website.
If you need help at any point, from what supplies you need, to how to do a stitch, to working in the ends, watch the video: The Beginner Knitter – Learn to Knit a Dishcloth and it will explain it all.
Once I created the mandala, it then further developed into the flower. It's a little more work to make than the mandala, but the final product works very well and makes a great statement piece.
You can make both necklaces in a very short time period, especially if you have some crocheting experience, which I recommend you have. This isn't a project for beginners. There are some spots where the work needs to be turned to work either on the back side or on the good side. Once again, there are plenty of photos to help you with the process and show you exactly how to do it.
This pattern shows how to make a stunningly gorgeous bracelet from crochet cotton thread and inexpensive glass pony beads. Once again, the pattern could easily be extended, quite literally, into making a choker necklace.
Included are a selection of photos demonstrating some less common techniques. Don't worry, they aren't difficult to master. If you have some experience crocheting, and if you can make a granny square, you will be able to make these bracelets too.

If you are just learning how to knit or need to brush up on your knitting skills, I've included links to my videos on YouTube that show you how to do all the basic stitches including: casting on, knit stitch, purl, bind off, knit 2 together, draw through, and how to pick up stitches to make the heel.
If you are just learning how to knit or need to brush up on your knitting skills, also included are links in the pattern to videos that show you how to do all the basic stitches including: casting on, knit stitch, purl, bind off, knit 2 together, draw through, and how to pick up stitches to make the heel.
As far as the difficulty of the pattern, adding the charms may be a little tricky at first, but no worries. There are a bunch of pictures included that show you how to attach the charms so they'll face the right direction.
While this project looks complicated, in truth, cable stitches aren't that difficult to master. It's VERY repetitive as you can see by the instructions below. Once you see the pattern forming, you'll know when to pull your stitches either to the front or the back of your work. That's all you do with a cable needle. It's a smaller needle that holds, then let's you work the stitches in a different order to form braids, or in this instance, cable patterns. If you're not sure how to cable, I provided a simple explanation how to do it and linked the abbreviations C2B, C2F, TS, etc. to these descriptions. I'm assuming this isn't your first knitting project and know knitting basics.
If you feel the flower is a bit ostentatious, the bracelet itself is a very basic design and can easily be made as a stand alone item.
The flower is a little more complicated to make, but there are photos to help you along.
If you are looking to make some extra cash and sell these, which I'm always cool with btw, the cost to make these is next to nothing. You can purchase crochet cotton thread for very reasonable costs, and reuse buttons you've collected, found at second hand stores, or even for cheap at many big box stores.
This is not the only crocheted jewelry pattern I've written. If you are looking for more crochet or knitting patterns, be sure to check out my blog, my website KweenBee.com or whereever you originally downloaded this pattern.
The latest edition provides built in links to the YouTube videos demonstrating each stitch used. It also provides links to even more free knitting and crochet patterns!
I've made this pattern as simple as possible with the least amount of sewing necessary (my least favourite thing to do). It doesn't even need a zipper, as I designed it to have a flap to fold over and hold in your valuables securely.
The pattern is fairly simple and easy to follow, but in case you have a hard time with the fluff stitch, I made a video which shows the technique entitled How to Knit the Fluff or Loop Stitch video on YouTube. In case you don't have access to wifi or are reading a printed version, I also provided pictures and descriptions on how to make the fluff stitch. The pictures are at the end of the pattern.
I designed these bootie slippers to be as easy to knit as possible. They are knit flat with no extra needles or special techniques required. If you know how to cast on, purl and knit you will be more than capable of finishing these for yourself or someone else!
The pattern is written to fit feet from a ladies size 6 – 12 and a man's 5 – 12.
This dishcloth is very easy to make and a great project for beginners as it uses very basic stitches that are easy to master. For the tougher points, like making the teeth (simply an elongated dc) and the edging, there are photos and a video to help you along.
So pass on the coolness, or be the owner of coolness. Make this dishcloth and rock it out the next time you're cleaning up.
This is also a great pattern if you have an extra special button that you just don't know what to do with, but want to show it off. You can use a muted colour such as white, or ecru to make it stand out even more.
And if you are looking to make some extra cash and sell these, which I'm always cool with btw, the cost to make these is next to nothing.
