Notes

MODS
Crocheted cast-on.
Purl row after cast on.
Beads in place of nupps, and at the points.

Using 8 mm seed beads and a 6 mm crochet hook to place beads.

7/6/11 - Cast on. Took at least an hour. PM after 8 sts, then after every 12 (x29), then c/o 7 sts to finish. Sl 1st st pwise, and p back to other end. Begin chart placing bead on every CDD by adding bead with crochet hook to second sl stitch prior to slipping (moving the other st to right needle temporarily). Bead ends up on center (top) st that way.

7/25/11 - Finished and blocking. Somehow I ended up with 30 repeats instead of 29, but I just added an extra 4 sts on the first short row to compensate. Worked fine. I used Sotnos’ eyelet mod. Not sure how people get that beautiful crescent shape during blocking. It was a little tricky, especially since this was my first time blocking points. Hope she likes it!

7/26/11 - In the mail. The photos aren’t great, and they look a little pea green. It’s much less yellow than that in person. More of a grasshopper green (duh, hence the name). I tried to get pics of the beads. They shone like nobody’s business out in the sun, but they just did not photograph. I will definitely be making this again. It looked so nice wrapped around the neck loosely with a little glint of small beading. Great with a t-shirt and jeans or something a little more dressy.
