Lithuanian Beaded Wristwarmers (hands-on workshop)
Materials: 200 yards of fingering or sock weight yarn and size 0 and 1 knitting needles, crochet hook close in size to knitting needles, basic knitting toolkit. I will provide beads and supplies to thread the beads onto the yarn.
Experience: Beginners welcome! If you can do the knit stitch, you can make these beaded wrist warmers.
Beads add a fabulous touch! Knowing just the basics of knitting, you can easily create colorful designs with beads. Using only garter stitch and learning how to read and work from beading charts, in this workshop, we will make beautiful jeweled wrist warmer cuffs that are inspired by those popular in Lithuania. We will also learn beautiful crochet trim stitches – with and without beads, for trimming the wrist warmers.
