Pattern: Annis, Knitty.com
Needle: 5mm, 6mm knitting needles and 1mm crochet hook
Yarn: The Woolen Rabbit Lace Merino, Colourway "Arabian Nights" (1/3 of 1200 yd. skein)
I decided to use beads instead of the nupps designed for the pattern, simply because I don't like the look of nupps and had been dying to try something with beads.
I used a teeny, tiny crochet hook to work the beads -- so easy and very pretty!
This pattern doesn’t use as much yarn, so I have lots left to make another one or two :)
I definitely agree with other comments on Ravelry, that in future, I would prefer to do w&t and pick up on return side to avoid long ‘slash’ stitch. Thankfully, it doesn’t show too much on a yarn this dark, but you’d definitely see it on a lighter colour.
Found the suggested bind-off a bit loose, even after blocking, so am thinking I may take it out and re-do. Definitely would choose an alternate bind-off for my next one -- probably just a regular bind off, but use a larger needle.
