Did you hear about the December giveaway over at KnitHeartStrings? The prize is a special one-time kit to make a beaded version of Lace Doily Beret.
Although the pattern does not specifically include instructions for beading, there are ideas and help for placing your beads to make your own 2-color bead embellished creation over at KnitHeartStrings in the article Beading the Lace Doily Beret. You can see an example in the photo above of how pretty the beads look when embellishing the outlines of the swirl petals of the beret.
What the prize kit includes
- 150 yards Tilli Tomas Artisan Sock 90% superwash Merino/10% nylon in the color Huron (extra yarn has been included in you want to upsize the beret to a slouchy hat)
- Miyuki size 6/0 glass seed beads 10g each of 2 colors: #1827 Amethyst-lined Aqua AB; #274 Amethyst-lined Crystal AB
- Printed autographed pattern
There are more than enough of each of the 2 bead colors to play around as much as you want in making your own version of a Beaded Lace Doily Beret.
