LauraNelkin_Beaded_NecklaceWEBBeads can make our knitwear so bright and shiny, so pretty and special. There are a number of techniques for adding beads to your knitting, and we’re going to cover them all.  From pre-stringing, through single placement to after-thought, we’ll make a small project that incorporates all three methods.

Class is limited to 10 participants so everyone can get the attention they deserve.

Prerequisites: Knit, Purl, Cast On, Bind Off

Materials:

1 skein fingering/sock weight yarn

US Size 2 needles

Tapestry needle

* Steel crochet hook in size to go through beads

* Dental floss threader

We will have materials marked with an asterisk (*) available in kit form for an additional materials fee of $15.  Or you may gather these items on your own.  Please note that bead colors in the kits will be limited to a very few neutrals colors.
