Ally W.: Welcome everybody. And again, I’m Allie w. So feel free to let us know in the chat. If you have any questions, and I will make sure that we get them over to Tamra Ally W.: And I will pass things over to Tampa Tamara – Moogly: Everybody like she’s saying I’m Tamra for Mowgli. And just to give everybody a few more minutes to join if they’re still just getting here real quick Tamara – Moogly: What we’re doing right now is we’re talking about the Karen cake off and I’m going to be teaching you how to add some icing to some of your projects Tamara – Moogly: Now the Karen kickoff and his amazing event happening at my goals and on Michaels com so do check that out if you haven’t already Tamara – Moogly: All you need to do is make a project featuring one of the Karen cakes yarns from Michael’s upload that photo and you could be entered for a chance to win up to Tamara – Moogly: 500 cakes of yarn like 500 cakes over here. It’s an amazing amount of yarn. There’s even going to be finalists are each going to get 15 kicks off ER and Tamara – Moogly: It’s an amazing very generous contest. So please do check that out. And of course it comes with some new free patterns for those Tamara – Moogly: Amazing cakes as well. So be sure to check those all out one of the patterns. I’m working on today is this misty Chevron Shaw and I’m not going to be demonstrating how to actually knit the shawl today Tamara – Moogly: Instead, I’m going to picking be picking up some crochet hooks so that we can add some beautiful beating to this channel Tamara – Moogly: So what this trial is made out of. First, I’ll show you the on already got some pre poll here so that I can use it right away but Tamara – Moogly: Sorry about that. The lights are a little glaring today. I tried fixing them, but they really want to be bright Tamara – Moogly: But this is the interesting part. Anyway, not the label this is Karen latte cakes and you can see this is a really fuzzy gorgeous textured yarn Tamara – Moogly: It is a great weight is officially. Let me double check. It is a five. You can see it doesn’t look that thick in the fingers. But with all that fun. It really does bulk it up Tamara – Moogly: It has this gorgeous self striping effect. It’s really, really lovely stuff. So the Charlotte itself. And I’m going to be working on Tamara – Moogly: Having to have to have them here. This is the one I’m going to be working on. It doesn’t have anything added to it yet. It doesn’t have any icing Tamara – Moogly: You can see just how beautiful this child is on its own. And then we get to dress it up a little bit with some beads Tamara – Moogly: So to add beating with crochet to a project. It doesn’t matter if it’s an IT project or a crochet project or you could probably even use this technique Tamara – Moogly: On something with an open enough me if you want to do it to a woven cloth Tamara – Moogly: But for this project, of course, we’re going to be using this gorgeous net Shaw made with Karen latte cakes. So you’ll want to have Tamara – Moogly: A hook that fits well in your project. So if it’s a crochet project, you can go ahead and use the crochet hook that you use to make that project Tamara – Moogly: If it’s a net project or something else. You just want to go ahead and maybe check the label Tamara – Moogly: Look at the pattern if that’s available find to hook that nicely fits through that fabric that you can tell it’s not too big, not too small Tamara – Moogly: If you’ve been knitting and crocheting provide you kind of know what I mean, kind of tell. Okay, this is the right size loop for this project again. You can also check the label on the Tamara – Moogly: On the yarn itself, that can be a really good jumping off point. And then you’re going to need a smaller hook Tamara – Moogly: And the size of X is going to depend on the size of beads, you’re using. Now if you want to beat your project. There are so many beautiful beads and my goal is to choose from. Right Tamara – Moogly: You can get tiny little beads for thread projects, you can get great big beads for bigger projects and today I’m going to be using coney beads Tamara – Moogly: They’re, they’re very affordable. They’re very easy to find. There’s some great ones at Michael’s Tamara – Moogly: This is what of that package is from Michael’s here you can see pony beads and this is a nice big size Tamara – Moogly: And this can be great day because it is good for demoing so it’s going to be a lot easier for you to see Tamara – Moogly: And it’s also great when you’ve got both here yarns. I think with the right pony bees. You can get a very elegant luck. It isn’t going to look like a child’s project Tamara – Moogly: I’ll be honest, when I first ordered the beats for this knowing they were pony beads as a little skeptical, but once I started adding to the straw them to this Shaw. I really, really enjoyed the look Tamara – Moogly: So for the smaller crochet hook. The key is just make sure it fits nicely through that bead. So that’s why I’d say it depends on the size of beater using if it’s a tiny bead Tamara – Moogly: You’re going to need a tiny little thread hook. If it’s a bigger be like pony been this one is A, B or A 2.25 millimeter hook Tamara – Moogly: So a little bit bigger. And it doesn’t have to be exactly the size as long as it fits through that been going, it’s the right size hope to add beads with. So if we come on down here to the table Tamara – Moogly: We can see here. Here’s the shawl kind of crumpled up a little bit that I’ve added beads to Tamara – Moogly: And I didn’t leave in my ends because I need to send these trolls back to the young company. So you’ll have to forgive me on that one Tamara – Moogly: But you can see here, just add beads with that crochet hook. You can do all sorts of different things here. I’ve just added some simple beads on some chains Tamara – Moogly: These are the silver ones. You can see I think that liberty looks really nice. Right. I was really surprised and pleased with how good the pony beads. Look, I hear these words and silver ones Tamara – Moogly: And if we move on down here, I added some crystal ones those are a little harder to see here on the camera, but they are just fine and sparkly in person

Tamara – Moogly: And then down here. What happens if you add more than one, you can get some different looks. So these are the different things are going to be exploring today. It’s all the same technique and it’s relatively simple Tamara – Moogly: And it’s a lot of fun and it only uses basic crochet stitches you can get fancy, of course, with crochet. There’s all kinds of different stitches you can try Tamara – Moogly: But I wanted to keep it pretty simple today for the knitters in particular who may not crochet that often so the the Tamara – Moogly: crochet stitches. If you will then bring these in here really are the most basic of stitches Tamara – Moogly: Now when I added the edge that previous job I pretty much stuck to that bottom edge right there right along the bottom of the show Tamara – Moogly: But you could theoretically do this technique and add them anywhere in the shot. If you wanted to add a line of BS right through the middle or across the top anywhere you want to add beads Tamara – Moogly: If you watched my surface crochet video last week here on Michaels, or if you want to check that out on the Michaels program Tamara – Moogly: You’ll see after this class how you could add beads via surface crochet so you can really do all kinds of really neat things with it Tamara – Moogly: So let’s go ahead and start right here at the end. And I’m going to go ahead and pull up some of this yarn and it’s a little bit of course we managed to be in a Tamara – Moogly: Little bit of a white spot in the arm, which I know it’s a little bit harder to see. So let me pull it out a little further here till we get to some blue Tamara – Moogly: Oh right, there we go. Now we’ve got some color will be a little easier to see Tamara – Moogly: So what I’m going to do is I’m going to take my larger crochet hook the one that I would if I were crocheting this project that would be using Tamara – Moogly: And I’ll go ahead and stick that right at the end, wherever I want to go ahead and start adding those beads to just want to find a spot. They are crochet hook fits naturally right under that stitch. Basically, if you’ve picked up stitches before. That’s the line we’re working along Tamara – Moogly: Then I’m going to go ahead and find my working on here and I will just lay it right over my hook Tamara – Moogly: Call that loop through Tamara – Moogly: And then I’m going to just do a chain, which is simply yarn over, with the yarn and pull a loop through and that sort of secure. Is it right there on the act Tamara – Moogly: Now, from here I could really do anything but we’re going to do start very, very simply, let’s go ahead and add a bead right away. Let’s say I want to be right here on this corner. What I’m wanting to do is I’m going to pull up this loop a little bit Tamara – Moogly: Put that thing that loop right over my finger so it’s nice and secure Tamara – Moogly: And then I’m going to put my little tray of beads that I want to add a little bit easier if you get them in something like this that you can work on. Otherwise, they tend to Tamara – Moogly: fly all over the table. I’ve learned that the hard way. Then we take our little hook here, we can just go ahead and put it right through one of the beads that we want to add Tamara – Moogly: Put back on the way here, so it’s easier to see. And see, now I’ve got that bead on that hook, I can do it by stabbing it I could pick it up and put it on whatever works for you Tamara – Moogly: Then I’m going to get that loop on this hook like so I’m going to pull it down a little tighter just it’s a little easier to manage Tamara – Moogly: And then I’m just going to pull that loop right through the beat and drop the beat down on that loop Tamara – Moogly: Then I can put that loop back on my finger to hold it nice and secure Tamara – Moogly: And switch books Tamara – Moogly: Now I’ve switched back to my full size book Tamara – Moogly: There we are. And I’ll pull down on that loop so that that loop now is the right size for my book. I don’t want it up here. I want a nice and just right up against the bead Tamara – Moogly: And then I’ll yarn over and pull through for another chain. And with that, that bead is now locked on Tamara – Moogly: To that loop. I didn’t need to pull the hook out there. I can keep crushing but I really want to point out what’s going on here Tamara – Moogly: If we look closely, I’m going to pull it right up to the camera here. Hopefully it’ll focus. You can see that that bead is stuck inside that chain. It’s not going to go anywhere. So it’s not going to slide around Tamara – Moogly: across the surface of your stitches, which can be an issue, sometimes, depending on how you add them and that’s why I really like adding the beads this way. So now it is stuck exactly where I want it Tamara – Moogly: So what I can do from here is I can move to wherever I want. I could skip a couple stitches. Let’s get one. So we’re just kind of skip right over Ray would add another stage if I were working into the edge there and I will slip my hook in there Tamara – Moogly: And then I can hear an over Tamara – Moogly: And then pull that loop on up to the up through our project there and then just pull that loop right on through the loop before Tamara – Moogly: And just like that, we’ve added a B to our project. So let’s go ahead and do that some more. There’s lots of different ways to do this. And I’m like, I say we can keep playing with it, let’s chain one first Tamara – Moogly: If this one’s gonna be a little different. So we’re changing one first. You know, we got a little more distance from our project here we pull up that loop again Tamara – Moogly: Put it over finger just to hold it secure Tamara – Moogly: Bring our beads back going to stick with us over just a little easier to see. Here, hit that right on the small book Tamara – Moogly: Put the small group back in that loop Tamara – Moogly: Here we go. And just pull that loop right on through

Tamara – Moogly: Then Tamara – Moogly: We can get our big hook back in action here Tamara – Moogly: Here and over again and pull through to secure that stitch. Now, if we do another one of those chains just yarn over and pull right through before we come back. Skip one Tamara – Moogly: And make another slip stitch right in that edging there Tamara – Moogly: And we’ve added another bead. You can see it just sticks out just a little bit more from our fabric a little bit more of a drapey look so you can just keep playing with it like that. And the great thing about this technique is if you’ve made an error Tamara – Moogly: You know you didn’t skip a state to skip too many or decided you don’t like the way this is looking. It’s just as easy to go ahead and drop this as it is with any Tamara – Moogly: Any other stitch to be done other than them popping off and rolling away. You’re not going to have any problems frogging your projects that have beads on them like this Tamara – Moogly: And I also really liked this technique because it is a great way to add beads. Even if you didn’t start out thinking about beads, but also when you’ve got a yarn Tamara – Moogly: Whether it’s fuzzy or not. If you’ve pre strung your beads and they’re very tight to the yarn or if they have sharp edges, they can really wear away at the yarn itself Tamara – Moogly: So with this technique, you’re able to add beads, just as you need them exactly where you want them and you’re not adding any more stressed that you are and then absolutely necessary Tamara – Moogly: Now one thing to keep in mind if you’re adding beats here project is that you’ll want to pay attention to the washing instructions for the beads as well Tamara – Moogly: If you’re beating something odds are it’s not going to be, you know, for kids. It’s probably gonna be something for yourself Tamara – Moogly: So this doesn’t have washing instructions on it. I would probably just go ahead and hand wash these Tamara – Moogly: And if you’re going to use colored ones. You might even want to drop them in a little bit of water or something. First, just to make sure Tamara – Moogly: That that color doesn’t come off. So that’s a little caution about that, but that’s generally like I say, if you’re using these larger beats Tamara – Moogly: If you use smaller beads that I’ll show you here in a little bit. That may not be as much of an issue. But I still recommend handwashing just to reduce the strain of the beads rubbing against the yarn Tamara – Moogly: So what else can you do with these so many options right we could do some simple shells. If you do have some crochet skills. If you’ve been crocheting for a little while, or a crochet dabble in every once in a while Tamara – Moogly: We could skip a couple of stitches here you can see I’ve learned over on my hook before I put my hook in there. I’ll just skip a couple of stitches. Now put my hook in there Tamara – Moogly: If I make a double crochet Tamara – Moogly: Like so, where we just going over and pull through twice and put a little bit more yarn as well. There we go Tamara – Moogly: Then I could add a bead to the top of that double crochet. I just all I have to do. Like I say, it’s pulled out that loop up wherever it is happens to be that I want to add a bead go ahead and just pull the bead right on that loop Tamara – Moogly: And keep on going. So you can get some really, really neat and unusual effects and any border that you can do without a be generally you can go ahead and add some beads Tamara – Moogly: double crocheted like this a lot of times for a border you’ll make five of them and that’s called a shell or a shell stitch border. So here I’ve got, say, three double crocheted and I added a beat to the first one I could add a bead. Second one Tamara – Moogly: Or excuse me, the third one Tamara – Moogly: misspoke there Tamara – Moogly: Pull that back down. Well, yarn over again go right back in that same space for another double crochet and then add a fifth one and five is usually what I recommend if you’re trying on some Michelle’s on a project that is usually a good amount to get across. Oh, cool, beat on that one Tamara – Moogly: And then we need to do is skip a more couple more stitches there and we can work another station the border to finish that off, just kind of like we did before, when we had those other beads going there. So you can to spread it out across the chevron if I pull up Tamara – Moogly: Or one before Tamara – Moogly: Let’s see here. Let me find the right end Tamara – Moogly: There we are Tamara – Moogly: You can see here were the ones that I just added the first way I showed, and then the next ones on here, we’re Tamara – Moogly: The ones with three beads. So if you wanted to add multiple beads. It’s the same technique if you don’t want to add them Tamara – Moogly: You know, two different stitches you can get some really super heavily beaded looks as well. So I’m going to kind of take another step here just gives a little more separation Tamara – Moogly: There we go. And now let’s say we wanted to add a bunch of beads. I’m going to go ahead and work a chain, just to pull out from the fabric a little bit Tamara – Moogly: And to add multiple beads all you need to do that is get multiple beads on that hook so let’s go ahead and add three Tamara – Moogly: There we are not one might be a little easier sometimes to go ahead and pick up and, you know, add there. So we’re going to go ahead

Tamara – Moogly: And put that loop on the hook and I can just pull that loop through all three. There we are. And if one falls off. You know, you just go ahead and get that loop back on. You’re looking for feedback on not going to deal since it’s so easy to frog. It’s very easy to fix Tamara – Moogly: Their so please go ahead, get that big Tamara – Moogly: Hook back on there. And at this point, you’ve got a couple options. You can make this yarn over and pull through and keep it really loose, if you wanted those beans to lay out flattened straight against your side. You could do that and then give it a nice tug, or maybe even Tamara – Moogly: Make that really tight before you turn up and pull over. But if you make that stitch really tightly Tamara – Moogly: You can see here is going to give you a really fun slightly different look almost like a little cluster of little berries and things. So then you can skip the next stitch Tamara – Moogly: And go ahead and split stitch to secure that Tamara – Moogly: So that’s another look. You can get with it. Now I did see a question come up asking if you could do this with a Pico session. That is a fantastic idea. If you don’t flip your stuff all over the table Tamara – Moogly: So let me try that. Here, let’s go ahead and do it with a Pico. So let me try to think, what’s the best way. I’m going to go ahead and make a taller stitch here just to get it away from the fabric a little bit so it’s easier to see Tamara – Moogly: So I’ve got a double crochet there. And now let’s go ahead and make a Pico stitch so Pico for those who don’t know, is generally a chain three Tamara – Moogly: And then you slip stitch in that first train made and that makes just a sort of little mouth called the PICO but sort of a little circle on the top of Tamara – Moogly: The stitch there. And that can be a great way to add a little emphasis. Add a little point but so. Okay, so we’re going to do. We want to do our Pico so we’re going to go ahead and start Tamara – Moogly: Our starter chains, like I say, usually it’s three chains. So I would go ahead and do too. So there’s one and two Tamara – Moogly: And then you know what, I take that back. Sorry. It was alive questions I’m figuring it out as I go. I would actually just go ahead and make one of them because we want the bead to be on that second chain, probably in the middle of that Pico Tamara – Moogly: So before we make the second chain we want to add the bead to it so that that’s where it gets trapped Tamara – Moogly: So we are in over and chain that would be the second one that traps that one. So then one more for the Pico and then we come back and slip stitch Tamara – Moogly: In that first chain we made. And there’s different ways of doing this. People like to slip stitch from different directions on the PICO however you like to do it is right for you. I’ll make another stitch here is we can see how it looks all finished Tamara – Moogly: There we go. So there we have a Pico maybe not as dramatic in this slightly fuzzy yarn. You can see there right on top of the PICO I would put it in that second chain and add it before you make that second chain Tamara – Moogly: So that would be my recommendation for that one. Are there any other questions alley Ally W.: Sorry, I was on mute here Ally W.: Let me just scroll up here Tamara – Moogly: Well, while we look for questions and I’ll tell you real quick. I’ll show you here, there are Tamara – Moogly: Like I said so many beat options that Michaels. And this is actually one of my favorite sizes us, and this is the size of be that if you’re looking at the sizing. It’s usually six slashes arrow or four millimeter and you can see these are really lovely little crystal beads that I found Tamara – Moogly: But these are really hard to demonstrate with, as you can imagine, these would be very, very difficult to show, so I’m not using them today. But these are one of my favorites for Tamara – Moogly: Dinner yards. So if you get a chance to pick up some at Lydia’s Tamara – Moogly: At your local Michaels, and you want to try a really nice thread project, a little light fingering weight project with beads, then I would recommend to this smaller size Tamara – Moogly: So I thought I’d just go ahead and show those off real quick. In fact, I have a project sitting here to give you a slightly better idea that’s made with a thread week Tamara – Moogly: If I pull up here you can see. Hopefully there’s just these those tiny little beads right along the edge there Tamara – Moogly: And those were basically worked on that second chain, kind of like we did with the PICO but I didn’t turn it into a Pico I just left it a long chain Tamara – Moogly: So you can see how those tiny beads would act there. And these, you might see more often. But like I said, I’ve been really pleased with how are you good luck. I’m really impressed. I think the silver ones are quite nice Tamara – Moogly: So Alice. Did you find any questions for me Ally W.: Yeah, so one day it was looking for. Could you show how you would add beads in the middle of the project Tamara – Moogly: Lately, absolutely. If I brought scissors. I can we need to cut the hair. We are all right let me go ahead and cut this your and then we can start a new little section. I think that’s a great idea Ally W.: Alright Tamara – Moogly: So I’m going to pull some of this up here because it wants to slide off into my lab, a little bit

Tamara – Moogly: And you could start obviously at an edge and work your way in. You could start right smack dab in the middle, whatever you like to do Tamara – Moogly: So this is going to be a little bit of a combo of the surface crochet, like I say that I covered last week on the Michaels class Tamara – Moogly: So you can check that out for a little more information. If you want, but this is going to be a slightly different version of surface crochet usually surface crochet is worked with Tamara – Moogly: slip stitches are chains and you leave the end the cut end on the backside of the project for this technique we’re going to need to start with a cut and on top of the project and then we’ll weave it in when we’re done Tamara – Moogly: So it’s going to be on top. For now, but it will go away. So what I’m going to do Tamara – Moogly: I’m going to try and work on the white stripe here. So it’s a little easier to see with the blue yarn. We’re going to take my bigger book, and I’m going to basically go around the stitch that I wanted to start in Tamara – Moogly: I know that’s actually a little harder to see on the white let’s come over here to the purple. So I will just find wherever I wanted my Tamara – Moogly: Stitch to start, go to the back and then pull the hook back around here. So, it pops back up to the front, then I will take that yarn again here find my my new cut end Tamara – Moogly: lay that over my hook and just pull that on up to the top Tamara – Moogly: Now normally when I talk about ends. I recommend about six inches for the second week I’m going to, I’m going to suggest even a little bit longer because you don’t want to accidentally pull it out as you’re working Tamara – Moogly: And because you’re probably not going to leave this back in until you’re about done, especially if you might need to pull it out and adjust a little bit as you go Tamara – Moogly: So now we’ve got our yarn attached right smack dab in the middle of our project and from here we can start adding beads or we can add a couple of stitches. So just to show you how I’d add more stitches before I go and add more beads. I would just go to the next stage again Tamara – Moogly: Go right around it, just as we did before, from the front to the back, pop it back up to the front and then you’re going to right there so you can earn over Tamara – Moogly: And pull it up through and then pull it right through your stitch. So if you look closely, hopefully a little harder to see what the fuzzy yarn. You can see I’ve added a stitch there and I can just continue working on across, but we’re going to now pull that up Tamara – Moogly: Get our beads back here in the action, you know, beat on my book. There we go Tamara – Moogly: And then just same technique obviously adding it on with the loop there, that part is pretty darn straightforward. There we go Tamara – Moogly: Get it back on the big hook and then I will probably go ahead and put a chain and they’re like I said just lock it in again and then I can come right back to the services, my work with the crocheting look going from the front Tamara – Moogly: Pop it up to the back, yarn over Tamara – Moogly: And pull that loop through and then I can pull it right through that stitch as well. There we are. So now we’ve added Tamara – Moogly: A bead right smack dab in the middle. And you can keep doing that in a straight line you can draw pictures with this if you want to do some cool images. I think you can do some really cool things Tamara – Moogly: And then when you get to the end, like I say that that cut and you want to put that on your, your needle and just send it to the back and leave it and as you normally would Tamara – Moogly: If you wanted the stitches to disappears that only the beads showed up obviously could use the same color yarn that would help a lot with that Tamara – Moogly: Rather than using a contrasting yard, but you could absolutely use a brightly contrast and yarn and create a crocheted line along with that bead Tamara – Moogly: So, and once you’re on top of this fabric like this, the sky’s the limit. You don’t have to stick to those simple stitches again if you’ve got some crochet skills in your bank there. You can’t make tall stitches. If I yarn over first Tamara – Moogly: And go right back down into the fabric sort of pick up a stitch there, if you will. I could do a taller stitch like a double crochet Tamara – Moogly: And then I can add beads to that. Let’s take a couple more years ago so you can see. So this would be a great way to to add a ruffle. That would be another fun embellishment. You could do to your carrot cake off projects, you can get your hook right in there Tamara – Moogly: And make all sorts of stitches right on top of the fabric right in the middle of your project, pull that out there, hopefully Tamara – Moogly: Like I say this yarn is really gorgeous these colors fade into each other so it makes a little harder to see. But you can see there, there’s a Tamara – Moogly: Whole range there of stitches standing up and of course you can add beats to those to any loop of them if you wanted to wherever you like Tamara – Moogly: And you don’t have to be limited to adding them to that top final loop to you could, since we’re already here. Let’s go ahead and do another one. I’m going to start a double crochet Tamara – Moogly: Now I’ve still got two loops left of my hook. Normally I would, yarn over and pull through to finish those. But what if I pull up just that center loop, it’s going to take a little bit more coordination on my part here Tamara – Moogly: But if I pull just that center loop onto a beam Tamara – Moogly: And get that loop back on my hook and pull it all through. Now I can finish that double crochet and now I put that bead in the center of the stitch Tamara – Moogly: So then you’ve got a little bit of yarn edge there too

Tamara – Moogly: So say for example you wanted to add a bleeding edge, but you didn’t want the beads to be on the final edge if you wanted a little bit of yarn there along the edge Tamara – Moogly: This would be a great way to do that you just go ahead and add it to a taller stitch before you finish the stitch Tamara – Moogly: And why would you do that. Well, the one thing that I don’t like about beads is when I’m on camera or doing something where I need people to hear me Tamara – Moogly: It does that it does it. How is clicks against the countertop or the surface or anything. So if you add the beach to the center of the stitch like this, that will give you just a little bit more buffer there. So it’s less likely Tamara – Moogly: To tap on the table so that can be another fun way to add stitches Holly, did we have any other questions Ally W.: Yeah, Julia wants to know do you Ally W.: Try to keep a looser tension on knit and fabric when you’re planning to add beads Tamara – Moogly: Um, I don’t think you necessarily need to simply because I’m, you know, as long as you use the hook size that fits your project. So if it was a very tight Tamara – Moogly: On net with smaller needles, you’d be starting with a smaller book and probably using an even smaller hook then to add your beads you really can. As long as Tamara – Moogly: I’m gonna say, as long as the stitches that you’re making will fit the beads. It just depends how you want to use them. You can see here Tamara – Moogly: Go ahead and pull these out a little bit. If I hold this beat up next to these knit stitches you can kind of see how they’re a good marriage right you can see that’s a good size comparison right there. Whereas if I pull up Tamara – Moogly: This little thread guy here Tamara – Moogly: Sorry everyone wants to slide off the table on my lap. Here we go, teeny tiny guy and get it to focus. There we go. It was there for a minute Tamara – Moogly: Alrighty, so you can see teeny tiny thread and that bead is just about the width of those stitches Tamara – Moogly: So I would say, you know, feel free to use whatever gives you the fabric you like you’ll just need to adjust the size of your beads and then the size of the crochet hooks to add them with to fit that project. Um, Tamara – Moogly: If you are somebody. I mean, if we’re talking like industrial strength Titan committing then yeah, you might want to loosen up a little bit so Tamara – Moogly: If you already know you want to add beads, just go ahead and sort of think about that. Keep into account. What size do you want to add and what size loops, you’re going to need to really make that fit Tamara – Moogly: So I just saw a question called come up and I saw the first. I can only see the first few words, but does it say what do you do when you finish off all your beats Ally W.: What do you do when you added all your beads Tamara – Moogly: That’s the word I could see was Ally W.: More finish. Yeah I’m Ally W.: The tail Tamara – Moogly: Okay Ally W.: I mean know Ally W.: How to finish with the meeting Ally W.: Okay, um, Ally W.: If we didn’t answer if we don’t answer your question correctly, let us know and we’ll try and help out, but Tamara – Moogly: Okay, so we’ll pop back here, down to the bottom. I’ve only got a little bit of an end here. But when you finished off your beating. If you want to finish it off with a tall stitch like this, I would just go ahead and yarn over and pull that tail and through Tamara – Moogly: And that will create a small not like thing here, and then you can weave in those ends Tamara – Moogly: If you like to bring it back up to the shop. That’s what I always like to do. I don’t like to have Tamara – Moogly: Necessarily this out here, but never say never. I might come across the pattern that it’s perfect for Tamara – Moogly: Then I would just get to the end of that edging and make sure I work into that very last section with a slip stitch Tamara – Moogly: And then I can run over and pull that loop through if I want to. Or you can actually just give that a tug and pull that last loop on up through Tamara – Moogly: And then weave in your end stresses you normally would for any knit or crochet project. Now if you’re adding it to Tamara – Moogly: The surface that’s where it is actually a little bit trickier. And that’s more to do with the surface crochet thing to do with beating. But what I recommend for surface crochet and we’ve got our tall stitches here. Let’s go ahead and work with those Tamara – Moogly: Get my youngest one still attached to this game. So I have to get out the way a little bit. There we go Tamara – Moogly: So let’s go ahead and bring this back one down to since we’re coming back down to the surface here and we’ll take one more stitch Tamara – Moogly: Around another stitch where but we wanted to finish off, and then I would go ahead and pull that through to finish it off just the rest of our slip stitches there. And then what I’m going to do is I’m going to go ahead and cut that yarn Tamara – Moogly: And pull that up just as I did before. And then I can take that end and weave that end through just like I did with the beginning end Tamara – Moogly: And on the surface crochet ones that one is very important because you really want to cut and pull that last one through that last loop because then when you so that in Tamara – Moogly: See if I can get it show here the gray stitch there. That’s what’s going to lock in that last loop. Otherwise that would be loose there Tamara – Moogly: So we just want to make sure to so that down. You can send that right back into the same Tamara – Moogly: The same little stitch, if you will, as long as you make sure they don’t come back through that loop and let it all loose, then you’re all set to weave in your ends just as you normally would. After that, Tamara – Moogly: Okay

Tamara – Moogly: Were there any others Ally W.: I don’t see any other questions. Oh Tamara – Moogly: Was that a Cooper. Sorry. No Ally W.: I, I’m sorry, I don’t see any other questions that have popped up right yet. Okay, great Tamara – Moogly: So let’s talk about um yeah let’s pull up the other show here and talk about a few of the other things Ally W.: You could do Tamara – Moogly: Of course, when you’re adding ice into your shop Tamara – Moogly: You can do whatever you want at all. But here is just that simple shell border. I was talking about without the beads and you can get an idea of how that looks without the beads Tamara – Moogly: Are really feminine touch. And this is a really easy border to add to, it’s very adjustable. You can change the number of stitches, changing the number of stitches you skip before you connect to the edge again Tamara – Moogly: Always just play with it to make it bigger project. Here are some of those shells that I did, where I only put the bead on the top of the center one of those double crocheted and I think that has a really fun nice look a little different Tamara – Moogly: And then here were some were added it to all five of those double crocheted exact same technique just adding it to the tops of all of those to create a super Blaney show there Tamara – Moogly: And then as we come down here. I’ve got a few more of those. These are a little harder to see they are those crystal one’s a little more subtle Tamara – Moogly: But here I just added three of them to the top or that center double crochet of that shell, just for a slightly different look again Tamara – Moogly: pull that down here and then here, these are just some long chains, I think, was a chain of 123456 looks like seven chains. I did, did these a Tamara – Moogly: Week ago so I apologize. I don’t remember exactly, but I think it was seven chains. So I probably did three, it looks like here and then on the fourth one, I added a bead three more skipped a whole bunch of stitches in between Tamara – Moogly: Before I added that again. And that just gives you a slightly different look. If I turn it around here and hold it up, let gravity do its work a little bit Tamara – Moogly: You can see this way, you get a really sort of drapey almost like a swag edge to it with some negative space in there. So it’s just another way to add even more interest Tamara – Moogly: And then you can see here, I worked all the way to the end. So I will put a stitch marker in it. But then, I’ve got that cut and I could pull through and weave in that end when I’m all done Tamara – Moogly: So I saw something pop up. I thought maybe it was a question Ally W.: Yes question here. So how would you add beads to the shells. If you crocheted them first and then decided to add beats Tamara – Moogly: Well, you would need to go back and basically work over them, but luckily I’ve got some blank shells here. So let’s do that Tamara – Moogly: Let me pull up that little section here. You don’t even care all those beads right on the top of the counter, they’re Tamara – Moogly: Probably not something you’d actually encounter. But when you’re demoing stuff, it’s always on the top of your mind. So Tamara – Moogly: There we are. Here we’ve got our blank shells. Let’s say we finished that we said these needs Tamara – Moogly: What you’re going to want to do is you’re going to need to work back along them so you can use the same color VR and if you want it to be more hidden Tamara – Moogly: Obviously, this is just what’s what’s what’s coming out of the scan. At this point, and I think the other color is going to be a little easier to see Tamara – Moogly: So I’m going to jump over here to the second one. Give us some separation and I’m just going to go and put my hook right in the top of that first stage of the show, the first child, I want to add beads to Tamara – Moogly: And pull up my yarn, just as I did before. And then if we want to keep it really subtle. If we don’t want to add any more Tamara – Moogly: You know length or size to this edging. I would probably I would go ahead and very carefully. You don’t want to pull this end out I’m, again, I’m doing this on the fly, so bear with me. I would pull that loop up I go ahead and add my be there Tamara – Moogly: Just Yeah, same exact same technique at it with your smaller hook, drop it back on your big hook Tamara – Moogly: And then I would probably jump over to that next stage. And this is assuming we wanted to add it to all of them Tamara – Moogly: If you only added wanted to add it to certain lines you would do the same stitches only have two beats where you want them Tamara – Moogly: So let’s say we’re doing all of them. I’m going to go right in there under those top two loops, which is how we normally go into a crochet stitch like so I would go ahead and just work that as a slip stitch Tamara – Moogly: And then pull up that loop and add that, next one. Now this is going to put these, I want to say the kind of in front of the shell, just a little bit, rather than completely on the edges Tamara – Moogly: Me secure this one so we can see a little bit more how this looks go into the next one. My next slip stitch Tamara – Moogly: You can see their house just adding them right along that edge with a slip stitch edging Tamara – Moogly: So you can see it’s in front of it a little bit. If that bothered you if you really wanted it right in the center on that edge, and I would do the same technique Tamara – Moogly: But I would just go under that back loop only Tamara – Moogly: For those who aren’t familiar, when you’re looking at the top of a crochet steps you can see what we usually call the Wii U turn it this way. It’s sort of like a V. Kind of like a knit stitch but there’s two loops there Tamara – Moogly: And be front loop is always the loop that’s closest to you and the back loop is always the loop that is furthest away from you. So it’s always relative to you, the person with a crochet hook

Tamara – Moogly: So to go under the backbone and we just literally put our hook right in the middle of that be so we go under just that back loop and working on over and pull up our loop Tamara – Moogly: Put through for a slip stitch or whatever kind of stitching wanted the loop was the important part there and then we’ll add our bead right there and this Tamara – Moogly: And I should off here. I’ll slip stitch into the next one Tamara – Moogly: So we can take this one down. So you can see Tamara – Moogly: There we go. And that puts it more right along that edge. It’s going to add a little bit more length, though, if you will. Not a lot, obviously not a whole lot, but this puts it in France, so it doesn’t add more length Tamara – Moogly: By doing on the back loop only, you’re going to add just a little bit more, a little more volume, if you will, to your project Tamara – Moogly: But it does add it right, the right to the very edge. And that can be a nice look too because having that on work front loop, especially if you’re using a smoother. One of the smoother Karen cakes Tamara – Moogly: And you’re going to be able to see a really nice to find a line of those unused loops in front to it’s just an additional design element that you could add with this Tamara – Moogly: So really, the possibilities are pretty darn endless. So to add them once the stitches are on. You do have to make more stitches to add them, but you can definitely go back and add them at any time Tamara – Moogly: I hope that covers that hopefully if if I didn’t Ally W.: Thank you. Thank you so much for covering that option. Okay Great Tamara – Moogly: Were there any other ones questions that is Ally W.: I don’t see any at the moment Tamara – Moogly: So let’s have some fun with Tamara – Moogly: That all these shells sitting here and I’ve worked into this Tamara – Moogly: One. So let’s go crazy. Let’s Tamara – Moogly: Let’s go nuts. Let’s add a whole bunch of change. Let’s go ahead and chain five free and it’s just a costume. Before we yarn over and just pull that loop right on through, just like that. Now, if we add a bead there Tamara – Moogly: We could pull that right through this is we normally do Tamara – Moogly: And then we could almost like a Pico work back into that chain Tamara – Moogly: To lock it down Tamara – Moogly: Like so now it’s right at the end of that and we could keep adding beads, as we work our way back up that chain and at the end of this, we’re going to have beaded fringe, essentially. So we add another bead Tamara – Moogly: Find another next internet change their hook right in there for another slip stitch Tamara – Moogly: Keep working our way up. And of course, the more changes you make the longer your friend is going to be Tamara – Moogly: But I think there’s a really fun fringe alternative, especially if you don’t like trying to trim off all those ends to the same blank, which is always the bane of my you know trials with fringe Tamara – Moogly: Always seems like there’s that one that I cut a little too short. And I have to go back and give them all a haircut. Clearly, the reason I’m not a hairdresser Tamara – Moogly: I’m just going to keep adding my Tamara – Moogly: Beads here as we go down some up to four Tamara – Moogly: So it looks like I’m getting pretty close here tonight. And I’m going to go ahead and stop there Tamara – Moogly: But if I slip stitched down here to my base and you have nor the shell next to it. You can see I’ve essentially created a little bit of beating French Tamara – Moogly: So you can keep going you know now that you’re connected to the top. Again, you can do a bunch more chains. You can vary the length of these fringes, you can really just add the bead wherever on those dishes you like to add the beats. So how are we doing on time alley Ally W.: We’re doing good. It’s about 140 right now Tamara – Moogly: Okay, great. So that means we got 20 minutes left. If you guys have your questions, plenty of time to get them in Tamara – Moogly: Because yeah, this technique is just that simple. So if you’ve got ideas and ways. You want to see the beads use um let me know Tamara – Moogly: So if you wanted to dangle some beating. I just saw that one come in. Um, well, trying to think what you mean by dangle because the French would be a pretty good way to do it to keep it secure. If you wanted a whole bunch of beads that Tamara – Moogly: aren’t locked in that are more dangling Tamara – Moogly: Then you could probably go ahead and cut your standard fringe and add a bunch of beads to that and had a big not in the end Tamara – Moogly: You know, just as you just add beads to the string and knock them off to keep them secure Tamara – Moogly: You can do that as long as you’re not going to be big enough to hold those beads on there that would be a little bit more delicate for washing Tamara – Moogly: I personally liked hearing them in with the stitches for me. For me, it’s a little bit easier. But you can do that too. I think if there’s another way to dangle them. I’m not just Tamara – Moogly: Oh god, I think that would probably be the best way is to just if you were going to cut French and then Tamara – Moogly: Add the beads on to that French and then not the end. Or maybe you could not them together and that’s another possibility actually just inspire me, give me an idea

Tamara – Moogly: If you were to do sort of macro magic. Basically, if you wanted to cut a whole bunch of friends, which I don’t have in front of me, unfortunately Tamara – Moogly: You could add beads with your probably your yard NATO would be the easiest thing as long as you’re darn ego goes through those beads kind of big one here Tamara – Moogly: But yeah, definitely with the pony beans that would fit you could use your, your needle to add the beads to that length of string and then tie those Tamara – Moogly: Fringes together, almost like you think of macro may where they’ve got a section before they’re tied together. You can do a lot of really fun things they’re adding beads Tamara – Moogly: And tying that fringe together to get a whole different look. So I see we had a couple other questions pop up, but they’re always because they only see the first few words so Ally W.: Yeah, so I’m Julia said is, do you think it’s easier to add beads as you go, or string them Ally W.: Bring them on Tamara – Moogly: Yeah, I think it’s absolutely easier to add them as you go. Because first of all, it’s kind of like a super long chain Tamara – Moogly: So imagine you know if you’re crocheting or knitting a blanket, you’re going to be putting on you know 200 300 sometimes 400 stitches Tamara – Moogly: These are the same way. If you’re going to add 234 hundred beads, you’re going to be sitting there counting each of those beads, getting them pretty strong and then having forbid one falls off Tamara – Moogly: Yeah, I mean there’s just, there’s risk. There’s, there are reasons to pre screen beads and there’s, you know, different Tamara – Moogly: Effects, you can get with that, but I really prefer to add them one at a time, with a crochet hook so I can get them exactly where I want them Tamara – Moogly: The other trouble with if you pre string them particularly with knitting. They may start running around your fabric Tamara – Moogly: The advantage to adding them with Crochet in particular is simply the way crochet works if I pull up one of these other many silver ones. Yes, it’s a little easier to see. Sorry about that. Then you can see how that chain sort of locked it right in there Tamara – Moogly: If with the nit simply because the way knit fabric is made. You can see we’ve got long links there. And if it’s a small enough beat it could travel right along that strand Tamara – Moogly: So you’ll want to think about that as well. I apologize. I bumped my overhead camera here. So now it’s trying to be all wiggly on me again. There we go. Head exactly where it was. It’ll do so. Yeah Tamara – Moogly: I do think it’s a lot easier to add them one at a time. You don’t have to pre count. You don’t have to worry about Tamara – Moogly: Being off having forget. I mean, heaven forbid you get to the end of the project and you’re too short Tamara – Moogly: Yeah, you’re to be destroyed. How this that’s heartbreaking. Right. So if you can add them as you go, then you don’t have to worry about the only time you have to worry about running out of beads, as if you have to run back to Michael’s to get some more Ally W.: Great ideas here about adding beads Ally W.: Like the French. So there was one. They said, What if you chain five and only put a bead on the slip into the base instead of at the Fourth Street Tamara – Moogly: Oh, absolutely. Um, you could do that for sure. I’m trying to find where we have some yarn attached to play with that a little bit. Yeah. There we are Tamara – Moogly: Absolutely. So let me find my working and here and I am just going to make some really ugly stitches here to get us a little bit of space pull us away from the other been so we can see what we’re doing Tamara – Moogly: There we are. Okay. So let’s say we wanted to add friend right here to the top of this shell for some reason. You could do a really long chain ahead of time. You can do after whatever works for you Tamara – Moogly: There’s so many different ways to make fringe. You could loop it some people make looped fringe. Some people like to work back into the chain, kind of like I did before, just without the beads Tamara – Moogly: And then of course some people cut the yarn, let’s say, let’s say this as long as you want it to be Tamara – Moogly: You could go ahead and add it right here before we go ahead and rejoin Tamara – Moogly: But that’s, that’s just it. This is so it’s such a simple technique we’re literally just pulling that loop right through the bead that you can really play with it. And since it frog so easily just pull it right back out. If you don’t like, which made Tamara – Moogly: It a little bit more yarn here so I can try and finish this one off. So I’d come right back down to where I started that chain Tamara – Moogly: And put the slip stitch right in there. So obviously, if the longer the longer the chain. The longer that French. This is just a little guy Tamara – Moogly: You can put that there. If I had put it on before I began that long chain, it would have been right there, but it is always going to kind of end up being on one side or the other, simply because of where it sits on that stitch Tamara – Moogly: So I hope that answered that one, like I say, it’s a little short Tamara – Moogly: stubby fringe, but on the little camera here if it’s Ally W.: An event wants to know, do you think surface crochet and the smooth yarn will show up better on latte cake. And do you think that the shawl would possibly buckle from the wait Tamara – Moogly: I’m these, I have to say these beads are pretty light. Um, I think, I think they’re plastic. Let me look here and see

Tamara – Moogly: If it says specifically what they’re made out of. It doesn’t say what they’re made out of plastic is my best guess. It feels like plastic. So these are quite light. And of course, you see the tiny little beads Tamara – Moogly: Yeah, those are even lighter but obviously the more beads you add sure you know if you especially if you get some those really big chunky beautiful beats that Michaels has over in the jewelry section Tamara – Moogly: really lovely. But yeah, you’ll probably want to not use too many or it is can we get rural heavy, for sure. And they’ll start pulling your fabric apart as well. So you want to use beads judiciously or use the small ones I’d say I’m sorry I forgot the first half of you that’s question Tamara – Moogly: I jumped right Ally W.: Do you think that surface crush a Ally W.: Gang in a smooth yarn Ally W.: Will show up Tamara – Moogly: I think so, yeah. Anytime you work in this new era, and you’re going to be able to see those stitches more, it won’t change how to beat themselves show up, but certainly with surface crochet. It’s going to be a little bit easier to see Tamara – Moogly: In a cemetery garden, if we pull up and see it even better here. Hopefully the latte cakes. Do you have a whole lot of fuss. So that does tend to Tamara – Moogly: You know, hide your stuff stitch definition and things like that a little bit. So yeah, if you want the surface crochet itself to really pop Tamara – Moogly: I would recommend, at the very least a contrasting color, but probably one of the smoother Karen cakes would be a little easier to see for that for sure Ally W.: Awesome. Um, I think so. Helen wants to know, do you have any suggestions on adding beads to like the route a knitted stocking at design Tamara – Moogly: Um, Tamara – Moogly: Well, I mean, this is one of those cases where Tamara – Moogly: Pre stringing might be the first the first first thought, simply because then you can, you know, you don’t have to be pulling up each one of those individual stitches Tamara – Moogly: And admittedly, that’s the hardest, you know, the biggest thing. It is a slower process. So that’s lower than stitching as you normally would. But you don’t have to stop. Pull the hook up the loop off, put it on that other book and addressed it Tamara – Moogly: Beating is, you know, it’s something you take your time with for sure Tamara – Moogly: I would still recommend adding them one at a time. If you can simply because that way you don’t end up with wandering beads. They’re not going to travel through your fabric. I think that adding them one at a time like that Tamara – Moogly: Is just going to lock them in a little bit better, you would still when you get to them and I apologize. I don’t have any needles here in front of me Tamara – Moogly: Because I was supposed to teach the shawl itself with but if you have your to needles Tamara – Moogly: Bear with me here, and you’ve got your stitches and you come to that next stage there. I would just go ahead and pop that off. Add your beat to it, pop it back on the needle and then make your stitch Tamara – Moogly: And I think that will help you get it right where you want it and like you say you’re not going to have to worry about the count of the beads, you’re not going to have to worry about to be traveling through your fabric and Tamara – Moogly: And then, of course, to it just preserves the yarn a little bit too because some beads can have those IP address that can damage your yarn. If you Tamara – Moogly: run them through and anytime you’re working if you pre string those beads, you’re going to be pushing them along the whole time, you know, as you work says it’s going to stress your yarn that much more Tamara – Moogly: And then, like I said, there’s always the risk that you ended up one or two short and then you know that’s the pits, then you end up having Adam with a beat in that book anyway Tamara – Moogly: Oh, yeah Ally W.: Another question here from Carol I’m instead of attaching the beach to the fabric on the fringe, could you attach the bead and then chain back up to attach it so that it lands at the bottom Tamara – Moogly: About that and I think Tamara – Moogly: Let me grab some ER and let’s have an experiment. Let’s, let’s try it. Let’s try and see if the idea I have works. That’s really the only way. And I’ll tell you what I think that’s Tamara – Moogly: As a designer. I think that’s always been a lot of our time saying, I wonder if that will work. So if we put the bead on first and then change Tamara – Moogly: I think it’s just going to end up on the right side of this chain, but I have another idea for that as well as we sit here and I’m having more ideas myself. I think that’s Tamara – Moogly: The fun of it. So the last one I put the bead on last before I slip stitch. So this time, if I put it on first and make that long chain and come back you can see. Whoops Tamara – Moogly: You can see there, it’s going to end up on the right side. Now, rather than the left if we put Tamara – Moogly: Trying to think, I think Tamara – Moogly: I’m Tamara – Moogly: Just trying to think if there’s a way Tamara – Moogly: If we do before we start changing I’ve just gone to that next stage there. And if we put the bead on there before we even make our first chain but not on the loop that was on our hook. This is the one I just pulled through Tamara – Moogly: So I know my fingers kind of covered the beads, but it’s Tamara – Moogly: Kind of the way you end up holding it. There we go. And then did our long chain. There we go. Now it’s in the center. So that’s it to get it in the center, we want to put our hook in

Tamara – Moogly: Pull up a loop at the beat of that loop before we finish that very first chain. So that’s going to be right there. So if you want to do long fringe where you cut it off. You can cut that off there and have your lung fringe there Tamara – Moogly: Honestly, after that, you can only have changed one just like that in and then cut that off and nodded it. That would have been a really fun luck. So let’s go ahead and just Ally W.: Set the question incorrectly. Oh Ally W.: There’s so many things like people. A lot of people are following up with, um, what about chain five bead chain five a chat Tamara – Moogly: Okay, yes, that would be that’s Tamara – Moogly: That’s what we did Tamara – Moogly: Oh, I know I did pick up the right end right there where we had chain three out of the chain three and that was with some space. So let’s go ahead. Yeah, and add one right to the end. So I’m gonna jump over here to start another one Tamara – Moogly: So 12345 clips more yarn Tamara – Moogly: And our bead Tamara – Moogly: Right there Tamara – Moogly: And then since this is the one that’s blocking it in Tamara – Moogly: I don’t know they’d want to count this as one of those because I if you want it to stay right there on the end Tamara – Moogly: Then I would just sort of not count that I would go ahead and count train, train five more 12345. So we’ve got the same number on either side of that bead and then we can come back down and slip stitch in that stitch we began in Tamara – Moogly: And yeah, there you go. Now it is at the end right there. So kind of like what we did here. If I just went ahead and change back up the Tamara – Moogly: Chain without adding more beads this the same thing, but I just came right back down and did a bunch of chains instead of working back along that chain so yet another look. And I think that would be a lot of fun to Tamara – Moogly: Get an idea of how that would look with some gravity on it here. If we turn this bad boy around Tamara – Moogly: It there. There we go Tamara – Moogly: So yeah, I think that is a really lovely. Look, definitely. The possibilities are endless. Anytime. You’ve got a loop available on your hook. You can stick a bead on it, see how it looks Tamara – Moogly: Put it in the middle of a stitch. But at the end of the stage, put it in the center of a long section of chains Tamara – Moogly: You know, like I say, you can add multiple at a time at a whole bunch to that loop. This would be really fun adding three at the same time to that chain. So let’s go ahead and do that together and let’s get another question I can answer Ally W.: No, I don’t think so Tamara – Moogly: So let’s go ahead and yeah let’s try that long one, but need to pull up a little bit more yarn for my latte kick here Tamara – Moogly: So we’ll chain 512345 Tamara – Moogly: Area yearns pulled up but it’s all tangled up in the shawl already. Now let’s go ahead and add three and I just picked three because it’s a nice odd number. I think that’s a pleasing look. But, you know, the sky’s the limit at harmony like Tamara – Moogly: Here we go, pull that loop through all three of those beads Tamara – Moogly: And then I’m going to make this one takes I kind of want this to make that little cluster sort of that little cluster of beads. So I would just yarn over and pull that loop through really tightly Tamara – Moogly: There we go. Give it a little tug squishing around, go ahead and give them a Jewish however you want them. There you go. See, now they’re all pulled nice and tight together, then go ahead and change five more 12345 you can slip stitch right back in that same stitch again Tamara – Moogly: Here we are. And now can see how that looks with three free beads there on the end so yet another there we go that’s the dangle people were looking for our Tamara – Moogly: Yeah, there’s just so many possibilities. It’s always hard to guess. But that’s, I think that’s the fun of it, um, Tamara – Moogly: You can get really, really creative with these beats and like I said with the surface crochet to don’t don’t think you have to work in a straight line Tamara – Moogly: You can take off in any direction. So if you want to learn more about surface crochet definitely check out the class I did for Michaels last week Tamara – Moogly: Should be up on my goals and that will give you more of an idea of the surface crochet technique itself. And now you know how to add the beads. So any of those loops on that surface crochet that you want to go ahead and add beads to, don’t be afraid. Add beats wherever you like Tamara – Moogly: Alrighty. So were there any other questions Ally W.: I don’t see any others at the moment I’m people really love that last one Tamara – Moogly: Good. Good. I’m glad he figured out the dangle that works. Yeah. Yes

Ally W.: I think this Tamara – Moogly: Is for Christmas items to I can only imagine Tamara – Moogly: And let’s talk about fact that you can I be sure a beat is a pretty standard thing but it’s basically something with a hole in it. What else has holes in it. Jingle Bells Tamara – Moogly: So you could just as easily use this technique to slip on a jingle bell on your project or, you know, like I say that been section at Michael’s, you know, you go in and it’s like, I need everything Tamara – Moogly: I don’t know why. Now you know why you can add it to all these projects. So you could add fringe, like this, like I say to Christmas gifts ornaments Tamara – Moogly: You know, go real crazy with it, you can do all sorts of things. Jingle Bells anything with a hole in it. If you can slip the iron through it. You can add it to your project Tamara – Moogly: So, Tamara – Moogly: I don’t know Tamara – Moogly: What it’s like and ideas and different things you can do. But I don’t know what else, people would like to see at this point. So, Ally W.: Well, we are at 157 and I Ally W.: Filled up a lot of time care Ally W.: And thank you so much Tamra for today’s class.
