Just A Beadin'...On The PiggyPie Chart 4

BeadIt, Yeah Just BeadIt! 
I'd be listening and singing along with that tune while Beading, but  for ONE...
I can't sing and TWO I have to COUNT....past TWO!

Here's my Beading Count Cadence for Beading Row #82...
Knit 1 ... Load Bead on Crochet Hook and Slip Hook in Stitch 2...

...Slip Stitch 2 off Knitting Needle onto Crochet Hook...

...Slide Bead off Crochet Hook onto Stitch 2 holding Loop on Hook...

...Slip Stitch 2 back on Knitting Needle...

...Knit Stitch 2...Knit 3 4 5 6 7...Repeat Beading Steps on Stitch 8...

...Knit 9 10 11 12 13...Repeat Beading Steps on Stitch 14...Knit 15 16 17 18...

...Repeat 3l more times = 32 Sets of 18 stitches Beaded

Doin' the Math
32 MultiPie'd by 3 Beads = 96 Beads on 96 Stitches = 96 Bead Loaded Hooks
So, with every Row having 576 stitches and 96 of them are beaded that leaves 480 stitches unbeaded. 

Doin' Higher Math
96 BLH's MultiPie'd by 4 Rows...80-82-104-106 = 384 BLH's, Stitches and Beads
That means that by the time I finish Row 106 I will have
Beaded 384 Stitches and knitted 1,920 unbeaded stitches in 4 Rows
and with the 20 Rows of Knits, YarnOvers, K2tog's and SSK's
which amounts to 11,520 stitches,
I will have been Beadin' and Knittin' for the better part of
13,824 Stitches!

Now with my Self-Bestowed BLH PHd in MultiPieCation
 I'm hoping that on Rows 83 through 102 I will be able to Listen and SingAlong!
By the time I have to BeadIt again on Rows 104 and 106
I'll probably end up Back On BeadIt Row 80
with my First MultiPieCation Degree
and just's not even Wednesday!!!!

  1. Wow! You're crafty! I thought you had to load all the beads on before you start. It looks GREAT!
