Knitting With Beads »
Type of item: Accessory
I used Madelinetosh Light in Bloomsbury Colorway (100% Merino so may not be best choice for durability with beads) and Chech glass pony beads size 6 in aqua with gold liner.
What was your inspiration?
Made for my sister who has blue eyes and blond hair
What are you most proud of?
Was able to knit the entire shawl needing to rip out only one row (though had to rip out twice to find error). Once I put in the stitch markers to set off each repeat and took the time to count stitches between markers after each knit row to be sure correct, I didn't have to rip out again.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take the time to use stitch markers between repeats and count stitches between markers to be sure it matches chart after each knit row. The extra time was easier than time spent trying to rip out lace rows without dropping stitches or loosing yarn overs. Take your time and enjoy the process!
