One of my favorite chapters in our new book Show Your Colors covers knitting with beading wire. There are step-by-step instructions for two different ways to knit. Projects show how to use multiple colors of wire (similar to design show above), several different sizes of knitting spools and adding beads to make a design extra special.
There is nothing quite like knitted beading wire. It has such a nice feel to it. The color combinations are endless. For the design shown, I used amethyst, tanzanite and red jasper in .019 Soft Flex Beading Wire. For a bracelet like this, you'll need a spool with 30 feet. I chose to knit with the 5-pin knitting spool, but there are also 3-pin and 4-pin options. I used bead caps as cones from Bead World and a toggle clasp from TierraCast which I purchased from ArtBeads.com. To attach to the clasp, I crimped using my Mighty Crimping Pliers and 3x3mm sterling silver crimp tubes.
