I-Cord Knitted Jewelry

Tickets at $110.00

October 1, 2017 2:00 pm - April 1, 2019 5:00 pm Atrium Inn Cypress Room 1

The simplicity of I-cord lends itself beautifully to knitted jewelry forms. In this workshop, you will combine several lariat variations with the added focal interest of a pendant that could be one or more lampworked beads, stones, or even buttons. You will learn several bead techniques that will result in different looks for the necklace. The basic pattern for this class is Galatea but that is just your starting point. This is an extremely giftable item so get all your prezzie ideas lined up for the holidays!

Students need to know how to knit, purl, cast on, and bind off. Experience with knitting I-cord is a plus.

Materials required to bring:
Yarn
Approximately 30 yards of fingering weight yarn

Needles
Size 3 US/3.25 mm double pointed needles, preferably wood or bamboo, 2
