Knit 1 Pearl 2


About this design:

I was knitting some dog sweaters and decided to try knitting some wire. I knitted the body and then went in and added the beads and then the findings.

Components:

    Very cool! I hope you knitted the sweaters out of wool, though. ;-)

    I had to knit on very small needles and your fingers hurt after a while, but the possibilities are endless. I used to crochet the wire, but I like the effect of the knitting instead.

    Thanks all. I used a garter stitch on 3.75 mm knitting needles.
