Knitting with beads is fun and can produce very effective results on otherwise plain knitting. I designed this 14"/ 35cm square cushion cover using over 500 seed beads thread onto a worsted weight/#4/aran/medium weight yarn. The cover itself is knit in simple stocking stitch, the challenge comes from threading the beads (not difficult, just a little time consuming - directions are provided!) and working the diagonal pattern. Instructions are written line by line and a chart is also included. The envelope closure is secured with three buttons allowing for easy removal to change your dcor or for hand washing of the pillow cover. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl Kitting with beads - instructions provided GAUGE 4"x4" (10 x 10 cm) on 8mm/US11/UK1 = 18 stitches and 30 rows SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 14"/35cm square SUGGESTED YARN 310 yards of Worsted weight

Originally from the UK, and after almost 13 years in Texas, I now live in beautiful Colorado with my husband and sons. Easily outnumbered by boys in my house, I am queen of my little realm, hence the title Ladyship! Ever since my Mum taught me to knit and sew I have loved the creative process and experimenting with design. I find pillow covers to be the perfect way to combine my love of design and the textures that can be created with a single strand of yarn. I especially love experimenting with cable patterns.
