This kit will make one Kairos Cuff!

In Greek Kairos means a propitious moment for decision or action... that is what happened earlier this year when I was craving a new project! I had an idea for a leather clasp and found a leather worker a few miles from my house who was game for a challenge! We worked on a design for a clasp that would work well with knitwear, lightweight, simple, easy to attach!

Kairos uses a new to me random beading technique on a simple 1 x 1 ribbing base that allows the beads to POP to the top of the fabric! The pattern includes videos that will show you just how easy working this technique is!

The Karios kit comes packaged in a reusable tin, that makes a great beading bowl, container for storing your knitting supplies, or whatever else you can dream up!

Materials Included in Kit
15 yards [14 meters] Emma’s Yarn, Practically Perfect Sock (80% merino wool, 20% nylon; 400 yd [366 m]/ 3.5 oz [100 g])
4 grams of a custom Japanese Glass Seed Bead Mix
1 leather clasp
1 dental floss threader (for stringing beads)

1 inch [2.5 cm] wide x 5.5 (6.25, 7) inches [14 (16, 18) cm] around (with clasp)

I’ve been making these Laura Nelkin knitted beaded bracelets like they are potato chips! They are quick and so much fun!! Also, totally giftable. I thought this design with the leather ends was especially pro-looking. But I gifted it, so I’ll need to buy another for me!

Great kit, knits up fast. Extra yarn and beads leftover. I've made two so far!

Yes, I ordered two kits. One for my niece and one for me. After knitting the first one, I had to knit the second one. I loved making this cuff.
