Abaclet: A beaded cuff with a bespoke leather strap!
Abaclet is worked flat with pre-strung beads and dropped stitches. The dropped stitches create a channel for the leather strap (made for me locally by a friend) to be woven in when the cuff is complete.
Note: The button stud in your kit must be unscrewed before it is placed onto the band.
Kits for Abaclet were November's shipment for Lola’s Choice (Laura’s super fun small knitted kit club). They are now available in 5 colors here!
