Are you ready for a tremendous experience?

Beads is a unique brioche design and learning experience. It is the second of my designs that uses the same syncopated 2-color brioche motif, the Cactus motif. This motif, knit in succession, resembles a string of beads, hence the name.
Beads has 3 design elements. The first is the main brioche syncopated section, which forms a steep triangle. The brioche section is followed by a combined brioche and garter short row section to round-of the steep angles of the triangle. Finally, the 2-color garter border is worked perpendicularly to the first 2 sections to finish the look.
