Betsy Beads: Master Class with Betsy Hershberg
For many of the projects in Betsy Beads, the proverbial devil is in the details, and this class will teach them. Learn the Zipper Graft that finishes the seamless bead-knit tube of the “Twilight” necklace as well as several of the “Four Seasons” beads. Work a bead-woven picot hem that is the secret of “Girly Pearls,” as well as the great beaded cast-on and bind-off used for the knitted beads of the “Wrap and Roll” necklace. Adding these exciting techniques to your knitter’s bag of tricks will allow you to approach these projects with confidence, and then use the techniques to create exciting projects that are your own.
