Continuum...Beads and Cables

This heavily embellished warmer in three lengths will sit prettily layered atop any boot, knee sock, or on its own. A fun knit with a mixture of beaded twisted stitches, cables, and ribbing, it looks more complicated than it really is. The name comes from the center cable, a simplified version of the Tibetan never-ending knot, symbolizing the interconnectness of all beings.A joyful knit to wear or to gift to someone you love!

Beads are strung onto the yarn before knitting in order to take advantage of the many ways that prestrung beads can embellish cables and ribs.
