Beads add a fabulous touch to crochet fabrics and edgings. You can use them as a sparkling detail on a lace edge or to form a pattern within your crochet work. Adding beads to your crochet projects is far easier than you think and is a technique that will make you want to put beads into everything you do in future!
Jane will show you how to thread beads onto your yarn, how to add beads to a double and treble stitch and she will also show you her brand new technique – how to add a bead into a half treble stitch on the right side of the work.
During the workshop you will make a small beaded sampler that you could make into a small brooch or decoration to wear.
Participants need to know how to work basic stitches and how to read a written crochet pattern.
