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 bracelet.
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 knit gift item that family and friends will truly love to receive!
