I redid my swatch for the mystery stole 3 and used all 5 bead colors I have to choose from.
Zephyr wool silk in Steel from Sarah’s Yarns on size 5 needles
from the bottom to the top the beads are:
2 rows of beads: 8/0 japanese burgundy irridescent from a local craft store (craft essentials)
1 row because I immediately did not like them: 8/0 matte black from beadwrangler #906
2 rows of beads: 8/0 grey copper lined from beadwrangler #915
2 rows of beads: 8/0 crystal copper lined from beadwrangler#207
2 rows of beads: 8/0 brown metallic from beadwrangler #803, these are the ones I chose to do the stole with.
I like how in the brown metallic mix there are different colors of irridescent beads that pop out in random order.
My second choice would have been the burgundy I think. But the brown metallic mix gives it a more neutral feel.
Friday we get started, mwaaahhaaahhaa, I can’t wait!
