In this new take on an old tradition, the designer has combined wire "yarn" and glass beads to create her own ingenious version of Grandma's classic knickknack - the candy bowl.
Finished Size: About 9" (23 cm) across at widest point, and about 3 1/2" (9 cm) tall.
Yarn: Wire: 22-gauge Artistic Wire (15 yd [13.7 m]/spool): dark blue, 3 spools; dark green, 1 spool. Available at bead or craft stores.
Gauge: About 3 sts and 3 rows = 1" in St st.
Needles: Size 9 (5.5 mm): 24" (80-cm) circular (cir) and set of 4 or 5 double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge. Beads: 6-mm beads as follows: 300 each gold-tone glass silver-lined, mixed green beads (forest green, olive, spring green, and chartreuse), and mixed blue beads (dark blue, blue-purple, light frosted blue, and blue-green); 200 each iris (iridescent) blue/green/purple and deep red bead mix (maroon, frosty magenta, and deep red). These beads are available at bead or craft stores.
