Leaves’n’Pearls is a knitted bead necklace where the pearl-beads are placed as you work (rather than pre-strung), allowing you to place the beads where you wish. Here, they outline the knitted leaves, making a cashmere-silk-merino necklace that is elegant in its sophistication.

The sample used Spring Gate Farm’s Cashmere/Merino/Silk blend yarn (fabulous!) and size 8 pearl beads from Earthfaire

The directions for the lace & bead placement are both charted and written-out
