Ribband, a versatile knitted jewelry piece, is a 32 inch long beaded strand that can be worn as both a multi-looped bracelet or a necklace. Based on a simple 4-stitch, 2-row repeat , it only needs 15 yards of fingering or lace weight yarn. Ribband can be worn as a necklace, or a cuff, and is perfect for throwing on with a t-shirt and jeans as we head into the warmer months.
Look at your yarn scraps… you are sure to have a little bit of the perfect something to use! Then the fun begins: you’ll need a simple toggle clasp and beads to match your yarn… look in your bead stash, and if you don’t have one, it’s time to head to the bead store and start one! You will notice that all three of the versions shown look VERY different from each other. This is all caused by the yarn and beads chosen. I also have KITS available in my Etsy shop.
