    Nelkin Designs Ailé PDF

    This bit of bijouterie, reminiscent of wings, is written for both sport and lace weight yarns. I designed them to use up some wee little bits in your stash and get you playing with beads. My favorite part is choosing beads and a clasp to coordinate. Start looking in your jewelry box or Antique stores, the best clasps are ones that have been lying around just waiting to be repurposed for Ailé.

    This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
