On a visit to a local bead store I was reminded of the stained glass of Irish artist Harry Clarke.

The sample was knit on 4mm/US6 needles with 3 balls of Ístex Loðband Einband Icelandic laceweight yarn, col 0845 light blue, approximately 730yds/665m.
Finished dimensions after blocking: 22.5in/57cm x 56in/142cm.
Weight: 352g/12.5oz.

The chart is compact and is in black and white. The placement of the beads is indicated, but the arrangement of colors is not specified.

Approximately 250g of size 6/0 Japanese glass beads were used:
90 grams of clear crystal beads placed along the edges and waving lines of double decreases;
and the following quantities of transparent colored beads arranged randomly in blocks of 12 with a contrasting color in the center:
40g blue
30g turquoise
20g metallic blue/purple/dark green mix
10g green
10g lime green
10g gold
20g red
20g amethyst pink
(10g is approximately three quarters of an ounce).

The beads were applied with a 1mm crochet hook. Some are slightly irregular, so it’s good to have a smaller hook on hand just in case.
