It’s Ornamental :: Holiday Knitting with Beads

It seems that every knitter has a stitch or technique that is a No Zone.  You see it mentioned in a pattern and, no matter how much you thought you wanted to make it, you are now turned off.

For me, it was short rows.  I didn’t understand the nuances of the wrap and turn, and most attempts were hole-filled tragedies.  For years I avoided patterns that even vaguely smelled like they might have short rows, claiming that I just wanted something simple and easy.  But then one day I took the time to practice, tried a couple of different methods, and wast soon short-rowing like a pro.  And you know what?  Short rows weren’t so scary after all!

We have a few classes coming up that may touch on one of your No Zone techniques (you can view them here).  Perhaps beaded knitting has you stymied.  If so, I’m here to tell you that it’s really not so difficult.  In fact, once you get started, knitting with beads can be addictive!  And with this pattern, you can practice using beads and make a lovely holiday decoration at the same time.  Win win.
