April’s project in the BOBBOL 2013 Series
BOBBOL stands 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 April, we knitted Mini Lace and Beaded Flag, a miniature version of the red, white and blue U.S. flag. The lacy stripes and beaded stars symbolize the flag proudly waving in the breeze.
Apologies to our non-U.S. members. I hope you will still knit along as there are a bunch of things I am going to point out that you can practice now and carry over to other projects. For example, a neat trick to carry the unused stripe color up the side without showing. No extra weaving in of ends!
If you missed the knit-along for Mini Lace and Beaded Flag, you can purchase the pattern now and still take advantage of free support articles for making this project.
Knit, learn, and enjoy the making!
