More Beads!

Adding beads with a crochet hook is as easy as 1-2-3!
Using just one hank of Happy Feet fingering weight and 3-4 pkg of beads from Owl Be Beading, we have knit up this cowl. Great pattern with great charts!
We knit this cowl in 2 different yarns, and we love how they both came out.
The Beaded Cowl can really be knit any length and any width; just need to make sure you have enough fingering weight yarn and beads. Here we used Happy Feet– a 90% superwash merino/10% nylon 2 ply yarn.
So many colors to choose from.
Join on Saturday morning- Nov 16 to knit up a cowl with JoAnne.
Includes a field trip to Owl Be Beading– our favorite local bead shop.
