Beads add color and flair to knitted garments, accessories and jewelry. Laura Nelkin's here to show you how easy and rewarding it is to incorporate beads into any knitted project. Begin with a simple cuff, then progress to Laura's Accola shawl. You'll learn how to select the right beads and add them to any design. She demonstrates on her popular Clarus shawl pattern. Along the way, you'll learn how to create nupps, place beads in different locations on or between stitches, and work in both lace-weight and fingering-weight yarn. The two shawl patterns included free with this class can be worked in either type of yarn, and in small or large versions.
