This is a close up of the garland that I received from a neighbor of ours. She made it out of a string of decorative Christmas beads. This one is 12 feet long, isn't that something? Here's the pattern for you:
Row 1--Make *1 sc in the space that is between the beads, then ch 4, work sc in next sp*. Work from * to * all the way to the end of your bead string. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2--Work *1 sc in sc, then work 4 sc in the ch 4 sp* work from * to * to end of string. Ch 1, turn
Row 3--Work 1 sc in each sc all the way to the end. End off yarn.
That's it, on mine Row 1, and Row 2 are done in white then Row 3 is done in red. She showed me some others she had done and she had them in every color you could think of. The blue beads with 2 rows of white and baby blue trim was just gorgeous, I asked her if she would mind if I copied her project and she very nicely said I had her permission. But there's no way I can make it this year but I have to buy the beads now before all the Christmas decorations are gone. She also said that it is okay to cut the long string of beads into shorter lengths, they don't come apart. So I just thought I would pass this little idea along, it is very inexpensive and just takes a little time. My list for next year is already growing and I haven't made it through this one yet !! Here's to hoping y'all are doing better than I am on being almost through. I better get back to work, chat later. Molly
