Gorgeous Garlands

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Gorgeous Garlands Link to website or photo www.crochetbykathy.com/Seasonal1.html What are you most proud of? I decided to add a buttonhole at the end of the garland to make it easier to connect multiple pieces depending on the size of the tree. Doing that, I realized the garlands could also be made as shorter lengths and worn as a bracelet, necklace or even a belt! I had a great time making these! What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes a little getting used to crocheting between the beads of the garland but it's a fun project to make! The instructions are given for 10 feet of beaded garland, but the garland can be made in any length, from bracelet size to as long as you want. Be sure to count the beads first to make sure you have the correct multiples for the specific garland pattern. This pattern is available for $3.00 and is written in U.S. terms.
