Knitting with Beads 101
Beaded Knitting Class Description
Get off to a good start with beaded knitting
Explore the exciting possibilities of beaded knitting. Learn about bead choices, proper yarn selection, plus tips for stringing and efficient handling of beads while knitting.
In the first part of this class we will make a small sampler in a variety of basic bead placement techniques. Then we will begin a larger project knitting beads into a garter stitch base using even-count charts.
Ideas for finishing your samplers into useful items will also be covered.
