Beaded I-cord Strap

This is a replacement necklace for an amulet bag I made some time ago. The original strap was a simple strung seed bead cord, but was not strong enough. This is a knitted i-cord with beads, done on #8 crochet cotton with #0000 dpns. Warning: VERY LABOR INTENSIVE technique, although it looks very pretty. The beads are inserted into each stitch every third row and are pulled through the knit stitch. If not pulled through, they will end up on the inside of the i-cord tube. Don't ask me how I know this.

Amazing - I can't imagine knitting with 0000 needles.
