Chronos Kits- Knitting with Beads- Cuff or Necklace Kit by Laura Nelkin
Materials: yarn, pattern, Japanese Seed Beads, Miyuki, Toho
This is a kit for Laura Nelkin's design Chronos.
Chronos is a classic timepiece, worn as a cuff or necklace, that lets everyone know exactly what time it is… knittin’ time!
Chronos features a bead-woven medallion surrounded by a hammered ring that is covered with yarn. The straps flow off the ring and are worked with pre-strung beads slipped in between stitches. Chronos is finished with a sliding silicone-lined bead that makes your cuff and necklace adjustable!
If you are working from a kit, your supplies will make either the cuff or the necklace.

I really enjoyed this project. The end result is stunning! I had enough leftover material to make some cute matching earrings (just need to add the hooks.) The only problem I had was the beading needle was way too small for the thread and was impossible to thread through the eye. Luckily I had a needle at home that worked perfectly.
As always with Laura's kits, the quality is excellent, and shipping is fast! The pattern support video is worth the price of the kit.
Laura’s kits are alway top notch. This kit was great. Finished in two days!
Love this beautifully curated kit! Can’t wait to put it on my needles and on my wrist! :)
