In the West


Project Info:

Level: All

Estimated time: 2-3 Hours

Project and Sample by Emily Miller

The colors of the west are bold, warm, and rustic. This beaded crochet sample captures so well that mood. Emily selected beads and thread in blues, gold, and copper that remind us of sunrises and the golden prairies of the American West. There is a casual ease that comes out when an orange and blue palette is applied to your design.

Emily uses a .90 Crochet Hook and Micro C-Lon to create a long, almost endless design with an assortment of beads in all kinds of shapes and finishes.
