At our meeting this month, Jill will be teaching us to make a beaded I-cord necklace using a free pattern from Knitter's


The supplies needed for the workshop are:
yarn: lightweight yarn about a 3 (gauge: 9 rounds to 1"), can be metallic yarn or tencel tape,
160- glass seed beads, size 6
2- double pointed needles size 4-6mm depending on gauge or circular cable needle
beading needle or dental floss threaders to string the beads
tapestry needle
2-11 x 11 mm magnetic clasps

Some notes about the supplies:  Pattern suggests size 3 yarn.  Can use size 2-3 yarn. Choose your needle size according to the yarn size you choose.  Can use size 4-6 needle, either two double point needles or a circular cable needle (I prefer to use the circular cable needle because I tend to drop a knitting needle when using double points). 
For yarn select metallic, tencel, or yarn with metallic filaments.  You will need 150-160 glass seed beads. A magnetic clasp is suggested.  You can get magnetic clasps and beads at Michaels, JoAnns fabrics or a bead store. 

Homework for the class:
String glass seed beads onto yarn using a bead needle or dental floss threader--before the class if possible.  Be careful stringing beads.  If using a yarn with metallic fibers in it as well as wool or a yarn that has a nap, it may catch and snag when stringing the beads.
