In this class you’ll make a small sampler bag that uses five different methods for incorporating beads into your knitting. You’ll learn three methods using beads strung on your knitting yarn, one method using beads strung on a separate strand of yarn, and one method for adding beads individually with a crochet hook. Once learned, you can bring these techniques into all of your knitting. This is an all-day class.

Experience level: Intermediate.
