Knit your own Beaded Basketweave Ensemble using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
Beaded Basketweave Ensemble is a scarf and matching split-cuff anklets to make eyes turn your way. Knit these in two colors of DK weight yarn of your choice and size 6/0 seed beads.
The interplay of the knit-purl basketweave texture and beaded knitting makes this a fun-knit project. The stitch pattern used for the center portion of the scarf is a slip-stitch pseudo ribbing that gives an extra-soft cushion of comfort around your neck.
Scarf is planned for one size. Size US 7 US / 4.5 mm needles suggested. Crew Socks are sized for Adult Small[Medium,Large]. Size US 2 and 5[6,7] / 2.75 and 3.75[4,4.5] mm needles suggested. Written stitch instructions.
Shown in Heirloom Easycare 8, #711 (for scarf and cuffs of the anklets) and #779 (for ankle ribbing and feet of the anklets), and Miyuki beads #6-1427 Silver-lined Violet.
