KNITTED BRACELET KITS & KOLLAGE SQUARE KNITTING NEEDLES

The Knitted Bracelet kit are ready made packages with beads and C-Lon Bead Cord and all the materials needed for the project. A printed pattern is added at no extra charge for your convenience.

Kollage Square Knitting Needles makes knitting with C-Lon Bead Cord or other bonded nylon a lot easier. > Kollage Square Needles

Kollage also makes square handle crochet hooks > Crochet Tools

Personal Note - I made my first knitted bracelet as a sample for Stitches West to show what could be done when knitting with the C-Lon Bead Cord. I got lots of request for the pattern. Since then I made a second one while in vacation in Mexico for my mother's birthday, then my aunt saw it and she wanted one... I have made many since then, all with fresh water pearls, natural or dyed, and gemstone chips. This pattern can be adapted to other types of beads.
Try it, have fun, and experiment! - Marion > Blog on Knitted Bracelets

Knitting with Square Needles and C-Lon Bead Cord

For this project you will need basic knitting & crochet skills such as casting on, the knit & purl stitch and decreasing. For the crochet part, all you need is single chain stitch. The cultured freshwater pearls that come in the kits are bleached, dyed or bleached & dyed. They come pre-strung on an elastic cord and must be strung onto the C-Lon Bead Cord for this project using beeswax to make a self needle. Read blog on best way to load beads onto cord.

Kollage Knitting Needles

Knitting with material such as C-Lon Bead Cord or any other brand of bonded nylon makes very durable jewelry. The challenge is to knit with a material that has no stretch. Using square needles makes the job easier as the needles do not roll down the hand while knitting. The Kollage Square Needles are amazingly innovative and ergonomic in their design. They are easier on your hands and help getting more uniform stitches. > Blog on Knitted Bracelet & Kollage Square Needles

Personal Note - While knitting some samples with C-Lon Bead Cord and C-Lon Tex 400 Cord with regular knitting needles, I found myself holding the needles tighter and tighter, leading to cramping of my hands. I discovered the Kollage's Square Needles at Stitches West. Now I am hooked, they are so easy on the hands and I would not consider knitting again with regular needles especially with bonded nylon cord. Try them out!

These needles are recommended particularly for anyone with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and stiffness in hands and fingers. In addition some knitters have found that their stitches are more consistent. As with all knitting projects, checking gauge is recommended.

US 1 - 2.25 mm - C-Lon Bead Cord/Nylon #18
US 2 - 2.50 mm - C-Lon Bead Cord Tex 400

Super Max Thread Burner - $28.00
aka Thread Zap+ or Super Zapper

Designed for working with wax models. For burning the ends of thread it works just like the standard thread burner, with the addition of an extra battery. It burns hotter and gets to a higher temperature faster, so it is recommended for C-Lon Bead Cord and Chinese Knotting Cord. 9" (22.5 cm) long.
