Lovely, sweet, feminine without ruffles. A smattering of beads for a tiny bit of bling, and a lovely Japanese stitch pattern. Not for the true beginner, but not a hard lace to work.

Uses 192 6/0 beads as shown, can easily be made longer by adding 24 stitches at a time (add 24 beads for each repeat added).

The ethereal softness of the Mink is luscious, barely there - like a baby kitten! It’s just so pretty. The color shown is Mauve Mist, and the beads are Mill Hill 6/0 glass beads #16374. Easy to attach with a size US 13/14 steel crochet hook.

The pattern is charted, but also written out for those not liking charts.
