This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

A string of asymmetric beads joined into a circle to make a fluid shape that is fun and somewhat compulsive to play with. You can twist and turn the beads into a flat flower shape or into any number of three dimensional forms.

The beads are made from 4 cm polystyrene balls covered with knitting. The knitting is simple garter stitch and is worked flat. You will need about 25g in total of thin 4 ply yarn for all eight beads.

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising page

Happy Knitting!
