Ladybug Ladybug~

Ladybug Journey Hat~
A beaded version of my free Journey Hat Pattern...

Modeled by my Eve.
When selecting beads for your hat, make sure that your yarn will fit in the holes, preferably through BOTH strands of yarn (this hat is knit with double stranded worsted or dk yarn).

The Ladybug Hat hat was knit from Malabrigo worsted merino in their Amoroso colorway, which is one of my favorites. (slurp). The ladybug beads were from my stash.

I am considering putting some Journey Beaded kits on the site, which would come with yarn, beads, and printed a printed pattern and beadign instructions along with embellishment ideas. Do you think that is a good idea? It would save you time finding the right yarn and bead combo that would actually work, both asthetically and functionally.

I am working on 2 more beaded versions for prototypes and am writing up some simple instructions on how to string and manage the beads and how to accomodate them into the pattern.
