Where:  Heritage Mews, Outside in the courtyard or if it is raining, upstairs in the workroom.

What:  A feminine slouchy with a dramatic beaded lace start.

The sample uses small Leaf shaped glass beads that are pre-strung and are worked into the fringe but any fancy bead would work equally well for the fringe.  For example – size 5/0 triangular beads or size 6.0 round beads are good options.  Teardrop crystals would be beautiful as well.  The beads in the body of the hat are placed with a crochet hook as the cap is knit.

Supplies:  280 yds 4-ply fingering (#1) yarn – Sample was knit with Dream in Color Smooshy; 3.0mm, # 2.5 US, 16 inch circs and dpn’s; 0.6mm crochet hook for bead placement; 36 fancy beads for fringe; 150 size 8/0 beads.  And don’t forget scissors, measuring tape, tapestry needle, stitch holders etc.11257577_921745697848794_951920607052312841_n
