Sivia Harding's Millefiore is a marvelously decorative yet versatile beaded trio (a cowl, wimple and wristlets) and like the millefiore, or thousand-flowered beads, that originated in Italy.  Sivia shares her design inspiration..."Millefiore beads look very mandala-like, and I thought it a very appropriate name for a beautifully beaded garment that is knit entirely in the round." 

Pattern is written and charted.  Beads are added by two methods: pre-stringing and the crochet hook add-as-you-go technique.  In each piece, the lace pattern begins at the bottom with a scallop, then becomes a charming textured lace pattern that is lightly shaped as it goes up toward the top.  Wimple is long enough to gently cover the head.  Wristlets can be worn either way: scallops extending over the hand, or toward the elbow.

Yarn: Fingering weight yarn, 400 yards. Samples shown in Black Trillium Trinity Sock (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon, 370 yds/100 g), 1 skein Serial Knitter Red; and Hazel Knits Sock (100% Superwash Merino, 400 yds/100 g), 1 skein Sassafras. One 100-gram skein should be enough for a wimple and a pair of wristlets, depending on your gauge and knitting style
