July’s project in the BOBBOL 2013 Series
BOBBOL 2013 is the nickname for Bits of Beads/Bits of Lace, and expands the popular Bits of Lace 2012 Series with additional types of small lace projects and the addition of projects for building skills in beading.
For July, we knitted Bells On My Toes, a festive holiday miniature sock for you to knit with beads and a bell.
Simple beading techniques make this mini sock pattern quick to knit, and the results look impressive. I bet you won’t be able to make just one!
You can use this little sock for holiday tree trimming, as a sachet filled with herbal mixtures or potpourri, as a gift box decoration, etc.
In this project, you’ll learn about stringing beads for a colored pattern sequence. Then the beads will be worked in a sampling of 3 fun beaded knitting techniques.
Even if you have not knit socks before, this small project is also a good introduction to the basics of knitting a sock.
If you missed the knit-along for Holiday Beaded Mini Sock, you can purchase the Bells On My Toes pattern while still taking advantage of the free articles for knitting with beads with bonus bit-size tutorials, tips & techniques.
Knit, learn, and enjoy the making!
