Beading & Jewelry, Lace
Beads add elegance, drape and a little bit of sparkle to your hand knitted projects. Using the crochet hook method to add beads to your work really enhances lace and eyelet patterns. In this workshop, we will look at knitted lace patterns and how to transform them by applying beads during the knitting process. Students will learn how to look at different charted lace patterns and then work out where the pattern can be enriched by the addition of beads. Students will then choose their favorite design and knit a swatch using laceweight yarn and size 6 beads. We will also look at the application of lace knitting with beads in relation to design for shawls, scarves and garments.
