Last fall, Sara made some super cool bracelets with the knitting spool and the new Trios wire sets. Her technique on the knitting spool is different than the one I used last week and the resulting look is twisted and fun. Aren't they cool?!
Feeling the need to try Sara's technique, I used Purple Amethyst Soft Flex Wire and Champagne Extreme Flex Wire together. I still need to work on my tension, as what I did came out pretty loose, but I like the two colors together.
I worked a wrist length on the knitting spool using Sara's technique, then switched to the technique from last week and knitted a second wrist length. I folded the knitted piece in half and attached the folded end to the ring half of a toggle clasp. I placed all four wires from the other end and strung them through a cone, then attached the bar half of the clasp. Next, I connected the two different knits using 15mm jump rings and covered the jump rings with a violet filigree and a couple of bird connectors. It's like a big, funky wrist corsage and the birds and flower are perfect for the coming spring.
