Class Details:

This class teaches multiple ways of working with beads on your knitting. It is the PERFECT introductory class! You will learn how to place beads with a crochet hook or superfloss, how to work with pre-strung beads in a variety of ways, and how to work with beads on cast-ons, bind-offs, and I-cord (if time allows). We’ll discuss choosing beads and yarn along with how to look at an existing pattern in your library and how to add beads to it. This is a class for those with basic knitting skills who are ready to add a little bling to their knitting! Skills gained in this class will translate over to many of Laura’s patterns.
