What materials did you use? Stash yarn knit over wood beads

Silverykay on

These knitted beads were made as part of Betsy Hershberg's Craftsy course. The general pattern is from her course, but it has been modified as appropriate for the kinds of yarn and dimensions of the wood beads upon which they are sewn as needed. Finished beads were strung and knotted into place on a four-stitch French knitted cord made from the variegated lace weight merino wool used to knit some of the beads.

Very nice! I really like the different textures and that you used a handmade cord too.

Thank you! It's a great stash-busting project.

This is wonderful! I have never been a real fan of "fuzzy" jewelry, but you may just force me to reconsider my feelings... I too am a big fan of your use of the french knitted cord. Brava! And thanks for sharing. :-)

I know what you mean about staying away from "fuzzy". I was concerned that it would be itchy, but it actually isn't. The yarn is recycled sari yarn and the silk is kind of matte, so it gives texture to the necklace without being too overwhelming in relation to the other knit beads.
