This is so pretty, and looks like it would go with so many different outfits! Details on the beads, please...did you buy them online, what are they made of, and was this terribly difficult?

Duh, guess I'll go read your tute.

Oh thank you you'all!!

Kaladala: it is really a super-quick project, I am not a fast crocheter and came up with in a morning and finished it. The beads are real cheapy wooden ones from a shop here in New Zealand calles Spotlight the same as your K-mart I think. $3 for the packet.

Have a look at the mini-tute any questions please ask.

I love it!  The colours remind me of a hot summer night (in a bold & exciting way, not in a sticky-humid miserable way LOL)

I wish I knew how to crochet!

Totally agree would actually be quite a nice beginners project, it's looks a bit tricky cause of the beads that's all.

Good luck!

I just made one of these last night while watching a movie.  It was so simple and satisfying.  Thank you so much for the mini tute, I see many more in my future!
