Bead Knitting

The mystery knit piece
This is what I've become obsessed with in the last few weeks, bead knitting. It all started with a Little Mystery Knit by Terry Morris on Holiday Mystery group. The first clue had us knit this shape without knowing what it would become. Then clue 2 explained the assembly and the mystery was revealed. I've knit a few of these wraps now and stitched them over 1.75 or 2 inch Styrofoam balls.

The finished ornament

This is the finished result of my latest one, and I added
 beads to this and some of the others I have made. All of
these are made with super fine or sock yarn on 2.25mm needles. The pattern is available as a free download from Terry Morris at this link on Ravery

The rest of the ornaments I have made from this pattern

Knit Beads and Bead Knitted Beads on .75 inch bead base

Then I started a workshop to do knit beads and
bead knitted beads. These are again a wrap
over a plain wooden bead. The two on the right of the ribbon are the first I made, then I did the other 2 to make sure I knew what I was doing.

I added word beads to all the ones I made as ornaments.
