Pattern Description from Knit.1, Spring/Summer 2009: “Beads sing lead on Jennie Atkinson’s gently shaped, rib-detailed pullover. The beads dotted throughout and bursting over the left shoulder are threaded onto Classic Elite Yarns’ ‘Premiere’ prior to knitting.”


  • 8 (10 ) hanks in #5216 Natural of Premiere by Classic Elite Yarns, Inc., 1¾oz/50g hanks, each approx 108yd/99m (pima cotton/tencel)
  • One pair each size 4 and 6 (3.5 and 4mm) needles or size to get the gauge
  • Size 4 (3.5mm) circular needle, 16”/40cm long
  • Stitch holders and marker
  • Size 8/0 seed beads with round holes, 13 (16) grams or 250 (310) beads each in silver-lined pink, bronze with iris finish and silver with iris finish
  • Sewing needle and sewing thread (for stringing on beads)


  • Sized for X-Small/Small (Medium)
  • Bust 35 (38)“/89 (96.5)cm
  • Length 21¾ (22¼)“/55 (56.5)cm
  • Upper arm 14½ (15½)“/37 (39.5)cm


  1. When working charts for X-Small/Small, follow all red lines and red bead symbols. When working charts for Medium, follow all yellow lines, and all yellow and red bead symbols.
  2. To string beads onto yarn, cut a 10”/25.5cm length of sewing thread, then thread it through sewing needle. With thread ends even, make an overhand knot close to the ends forming a loop. Insert the end of the yarn through the sewing thread loop for approximately 10”/25.5cm. thread beads onto needle, then slide them down onto the yarn.
  3. Place all three bead colors into a small bowl, then mix together. Thread beads onto yarn, picking colors at random. See individual instructions for how many beads to thread on for each part of pullover. Note that you will be threading on more beads then needed in case of mistakes or damaged beads. If you come across a bead that is damaged, you can remove it from the yarn by breaking it with pliers.
  4. All ribbed bands are unbeaded yarn.
