From the genius of Sivia Harding, a wonderful project -- a very well-written and easy-to-follow tutorial on beaded knitting that yields you a wonderful finished product in the form of a little purse.

This beaded purse includes several techniques for knitting beads into fabric. After you finish knitting this sampler, you will know lots of ways to knit with beads, including how to make beaded fringe!

You will need about 40 yards of a fingering weight or a sport weight yarn. For the beads, go with size 6/0 or equivalent, main color - 256; accent color - 40.

You will also want either a dental floss threader or big eye bead and a very thin crochet hook (the 0.6 mm crochet hook will work well: see our Needles and Hooks section) and about size 3.5 mm or 3.75 mm wooden double point needles.

There is also an option for adding larger 8mm glass beads as part of the drawstring fringe.

If you would like our help putting together a set of beads to make this with, let me know via email and we do something that will work perfectly.

This is a wonderful little project and makes a lovely gift as well. One friend of mine has made many of these which she then fills with potpourri for delicious scents.
