Fountain of Youth Abacus Row Counter
Fountain of Youth handmade abacus row counters are beautifully functional multi-use tools. While tracking stitches, rows or repeats, the counter graces your wrist as a bracelet or functions as a fob – which allows you to tether your scissor or other tool within easy reach, perhaps on your knitting bag. Each string of beads, silver and gold, has 9 beads. Because of this, they can together track your count up to the number 99. When using the abacus myself, I designate the gold beads to be the tens digit (10, 20, 30 …, 90) and the silver beads to be the ones digit (1, 2, 3 …, 9). I have included complete instructions for how to use the abacus row counter in the link in the features below. With our handmade Fountain of Youth abacus row counter, you can eliminate the frustration of counting because you always know your position in your work.

*Abacus row counters are approximately 9 inches long and they may be too long to function well as a bracelet for your wrist. Shorter fobs have less functionality. If you intend to only wear it, please measure your wrist to check the fit before purchasing. I find it easier to use them when not wearing them.
I provide organza pouches in which to store your MarkiDieux handmade products to help you organize and protect them. Next, I package these product pouches in a sturdy and ribbon-wrapped box so that you will receive your products safely. Store your products in this box or some other similar sturdy storage case in order to prolong their long life.
Because I make my handmade products to order, the shown photos are not the exact product you will receive. Your abacus row counter will have the same style and quality of those in the photos, but you can expect slight differences due to the handmade process and normal bead variations.
