Kinetik is a based on a chevron beaded lace stitch and is created by working two separate triangles and then joining them together with a center panel.  There are detailed instructions for working Kinetik with A LOT, SOME or NO beads.  The pattern includes links to videos for made especially for helping with the tricksy bits of this design.

Kinetik was originally released as a Mystery KAL in January of 2012. Because of this there is a HUGE amount of advice and help for knitting this pattern in my Ravelry group.
