Betsy Hershberg, author of Betsy Beads: Confessions of a Left-Brained Knitter, discovered the adventurous artist inside her... and you will too. In Brilliant Knit Beads, Betsy shows you how to turn simple 2-D swatches into sparkling, one-of-a-kind beads and necklaces, read charts and master knitting on a small scale. You'll learn how to choose the perfect fibers and beads, two easy techniques for knitting pre-strung beads between and onto stitches, and four different kinds of knitted, beaded "wrappers." Betsy's techniques are perfect for skilled knitters or ambitious beginners. You'll pick up lots of innovative techniques that you can use in other knitting projects, including the provisional crocheted cast-on, the Kitchener graft and the brand-new zipper graft, which creates a seamless join for bead-knit fabric.gUnclasp your creativity and design an infinite array of beads and jewelry!
