Knitting with Beads Workshop with Jen Krueger
Come and learn how to knit with beads to discover a simple way to embellish your knitting! We will be using the Silvia Harding pattern, Aquitaine - a pair of stylish gauntlets (fingerless gloves).
Some beads are pre-strung and some are placed with the add-as-you-go crochet hook method for a variety of effects. You're encouraged to make your own bead modifications to create a completely unique work of art - don't forget to check out Beadalotta for a great bead selection!
