You Will Need:
BEADS: Select beads that are the appropriate size and weight for your yarn and project. You don’t want to use beads that are too big and heavy as to cause your project to droop (I don’t know about you—but I’ve got enough drooping in my life) or beads that are so small that they become lost in the project. (51—75 beads.)
YARN: of your choosing that will accommodate the hole size of the bead. If the hole is too small, the yarn may become frayed as you slide the beads.
SEWING NEEDLE: small enough to pull the thread through the bead
KNITTING NEEDLE: circular 24-40 inches, appropriate size for yarn weight (ie worsted = 7 to 8, fingering = 3 to 4)
