GAUGE:

Gauge is not important to this project. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

CURTAIN
Step 1: You’ll need to take a measurement – just one! Decide where you’ll want your finished curtain to hang. If you’re hanging it in a doorway, measure the height (length) of the doorway. If you want the curtain to hang to the floor, measure from the top of the doorway all the way to the floor. If you’re going to put beads in your curtain, add a couple of extra inches for knots to hold the beads in place. Too long is okay - you can always shorten it if you need to.


Step 2: Figure out a pattern that you like. We alternated rows of Bouclé with Fun Fur, as follows:

Strand 1: Lion Bouclé, in “Sorbet inches
Strand 2: Lion Fun Fur, in “Hot Pink inches
Strand 3: Lion Bouclé, in “Sprinkles inches
Strand 4: Lion Fun Fur, in “Turquoise
Strand 5: Lion Bouclé, in “Sorbet inches
Strand 6: Lion Fun Fur, in “Violet inches
Strand 7: Lion Bouclé, in “Sprinkles inches
Strand 8: Lion Fun Fur, in “Hot Pink inches

Continue this pattern, alternating colors of Lion Bouclé with colors of Fun Fur, or make up a pattern that you like!

Step 3: Cut yarn the length of the doorway. Tie beads onto the strands in random places. When you finish a strand, tie it onto the tension rod. Keep repeating this until you have as many strands as you like going across the rod.

Step 4: Secure the tension rod in the chosen doorway.

That’s it! You’re done! Love the way it looks? Consider making beaded curtains for your windows, or one for a friend - they’re fun, fast, and fantastic!

* When selecting beads for your curtain, be sure that the hole in your beads is large enough for either a tapestry needle or a beading needle to pass through..
