Guadalupe River Light is very feminine, light garment embellished with beads and tassels. The stitch patterns are intricate, but easy to follow and the bead application is supported by photo and video tutorials. Don’t want to use beads? No worries, just knit this stitch instead.

This design is a lighter version of my Guadalupe River pattern, which is done in DK weight yarn. The design is inspired by Guadalupe River that flows in the heart of Texas. This garment is a blend of comfort and style and would make a perfect addition to your wardrobe.

The pattern is 9 pages long with detailed written instructions, charts, photo tutorials and video tutorials on my YouTube channel

Amanda Hope Yarn created kits in the yarn that you see on the cover + other colors. The kit includes the yarn, glass Miyuki beads, wooden beads for the tassels and the crochet hook for bead application. You will LOVE working with this yarn! You can find the kit here:
