Instant gratification does not usually come in a fingering weight yarn. Then along came the Mudra Cuff by Laura Nelkin.
For anyone who has knitted with beads before, this project is quick & easy. For those who haven’t, this is the perfect introduction to knitting with beads. The reason this project is so good for beginners (and quick for more experienced knitters) is the repetition and the frequency of the repeat. The simplicity of each allow you to get into a great rhythm and focus on getting the technique & aesthetic perfected. Simply put, knitters of all skill levels can create this project & make it look really good!
This knitted cuff is very versatile — wear it on its own or knit up a few and stack them. Really want to have some fun? Make different colors and stack them! If you fall in love (and I know you will), you can even purchase a Mudra Necklace Kit to make a matching necklace. Both kits use Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock yarn which is absolutely fabulous. If you haven’t had the pleasure of knitting with it, the Mudra kits are an excellent chance to try it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed in either.
I am super excited to be teaching a class on creating the Mudra Cuff on Saturday, September 22 at Firefly Fibers in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Class runs from 12:30 – 2:30 and will cover everything you need to know to complete this project. From attaching the clasps, to working an i-cord to placing the beads — I will walk you through it all. ‘But Sarah, I want to learn to knit the necklace.’ No problem! Learn to make the cuff and the necklace will be a breeze — plus you’ll have a matching set!
Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for your imminent addiction to the Mudra Cuff and Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock. You’re welcome for both though.
