Synopsis

Let Lily Chin take your handknitting and crochet to a whole new level! Lily's fashion-savvy designs have won her international acclaim and brought much-deserved attention to the innovative creations of "hip, young, urban knitters" like herself. Drawing on her extremely popular bead knitting workshops, Lily presents separate chapters on stitch techniques for knitting and crochet including prestrung and hoisted-atop stitches, single- and double-crochet, and half-double crochet. Each technique is then demonstrated with an exciting range of Lily's own masterful designs that feature a sparkling array of beads strategically nestled among the stitches. Beaded projects are accompanied by easy, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, and include a faux Fair Isle and Cabled Tunic sweaters, a short-sleeve pullover and vest, felted slippers with a beaded-star pattern, and dazzling jewelry. Also shown are ways to mix techniques and add beaded accents to pockets, collars, scarves, socks, vests, and even pillows. Knitters and crocheters of all skill levels will find inspiring projects and a feast of possibilities for one-of-a-kind garments and accessories.

Discover the new texture and color of bead embellishment and jump-start your fiber and your imagination!
