New Pattern: Beads are just so much fun! (free to blogreaders)

I’m so lucky to get to teach a whole afternoon of fun with knitting and beads today with the amazing knitters at Bluebird Yarn and Fiber. As part of the class, I am teaching how to make a beaded ornament – something that you can give as a gift where size doesn’t matter. I love how this came out! The fun thing is that you knit this (including the fringe) flat, then just six stitch of grafting, a little pulling, and the fringe magically appears!


You can use smaller beads, other kinds of yarn, and the effects will change. It’s perfect for using up scraps of yarn. Pattern details are here.

As a gift to you, my blog readers, I’ve set up a coupon code so you can download this pattern for free through Monday, October11th November 11 – after that, it will be just a $2.00. Just go here for the pattern purchase with coupon code.

Thanks, readers, for taking the journey in stitches and life with me!
