Beaded Crescent Neck Lace
a featured pattern in the BOBBOL 2013 series
HeartStrings knitting pattern #H93
simply beautiful — lace for your neck
Adorn your neckline with a crescent of color and beads. Beaded Crescent Neck Lace starts with an elegant beaded loops lace edging. Then fill out the shape with simple garter stitch short rows that let the colors of your yarn sing in accompaniment to sparkly beads. More beads edge the upper neckline in a pretty bind off to complete your neck lace.
Wear it simply beautiful all by itself as a little neck scarf, or add a clasp and wear as a necklace – your choice. The weight of the beads adds just enough body to the fabric to stay in place.
Beaded Crescent Neck Lace was the 10th pattern in the BOBBOL 2013 knit-and-learn-along series hosted by Jackie E-S of HeartStrings Fiberarts at the KnitHeartStrings.com membership site.
If you missed the knit-and-learn-along for Beaded Crescent Neck Lace, you can purchase the pattern now and still take advantage of free tutorials, tips & techniques articles in the October 2013 archives at KnitHeartStrings.
