I enjoy wire spool knitting. See this past post on How to Spool Knit Wire Jewelry to see some examples and tutorials. I usually just use soft 26 or 28G wire. But this tutorial post from the folks at Lima Beads uses colorful Softflex beading wire to create spool knitted bracelets.
The tutorial actually covers 3 different variations depending on how many loops you make on each peg. So the resulting styles will look different.
Consider embellishing the finished bracelets with beads by threading more beading wire in and out of the knitted wire. Use crimp beads to start and finish the extra beading wire. Does this make sense?
