From Knit and Crochet with Beads This cardigan features layers and layers of stitchery and beadwork that look intricate but really aren’t. Slip-stitching means that you need to handle only one color at a time. When you add beads to form another pattern within the existing pattern, you also create another dimension of color and texture. I love getting a lot of bang for my buck. And I’ll say it once again: this design looks difficult, but it’s a lot easier to do than you first think.
