I like it!  Cheesy  Did you make it on a knitting spool?  I tried that the other day with wire and it didn't turn out too bad for my first time.  ( Cheesy  At least that 's what I thought.  LOL)

Hi there, That is pretty. I make knitted beaded bracelets too, mostly with seed beads like the one below, but sometimes with semi-precious beads/chips on sterling silver wire. I've found higher gauge (i.e. thinner) wire best to work with, around 26-28 gauge which is roughly .4mm diameter. If you're using sterling wire, ask for annealed (i.e. softened) wire.



To make this bracelet, I threaded up about 50 seed beads. Cast on 3 stitches and knit as many of those tiny rows as you need to get the length you require. When you want to place a bead, bring it up the wire so it's up close by the x of your needles as they touch. As you wrap the wire to form a stitch, the bead is held in place in the stitch.

For a semi-precious gemstone or seed pearl bracelet, I only use about 35 beads.
