Pioneer Cuff

Pioneer Cuff is a simple lace cuff knit in either lace, light fingering or fingering weight yarn that incorporates both pre-strung beads that are slipped in between stitches and larger beads that are placed on stitches with super floss or a crochet hook.  This is a GREAT learning cuff, for teaching multiple beading techniques and knitting simple lace!  Pattern is both charted and written out and includes video links for working with the beads!  Pioneer Cuff is also used as a learning pattern in my Craftsy class: Knitting with Beads

There are also kits available for Pioneer Cuff... check them out!
