Betsy's Beaded Bracelet with Betsy Hershberg
Learn all of the techniques and receive all of the materials you need to design and knit your own bead knitted jewelry. You'll explore combinations of beads and yarn, choose or create an original bead placement design, and learn about bead stringing, chart reading and finishing, including a new kind of graft that results in a seamless join
for bead-knitted fabric. While you create your own design for a bracelet, string the beads, and knit it in class, we'll discuss how the same or similar techniques can be used for necklaces, earrings or other accessories. This is a great knitted gift item that family and friends will truly love to receive!
