Delicate Beaded Ruffled Scarf
Knit one for yourself or someone special. Put together a kit with beads, yarn and the pattern for a gift. The local yarn shops have lace weight mohair and many have 6/0 seed beads, and the scarf only uses one ball of yarn and approximately 20 grams of beads.
Using lace weight, wispy mohair, this scarf or wrap is knit with size 15 needles. Beading on the ruffles at each end add a special touch to this uncomplicated design. Sprinkle beads throughout the body of the scarf for added interest and fun!
This design may be knit as a shawl by adding another ball of yarn and increasing the width. Increase the length of the scarf by adding more yarn before the ending ruffle.
Beads are pre strung with a dental floss threader. 20 grams of TOHO seed beads in size 6/0.
This is a helpful U-Tube video for stringing beads onto the yarn using a dental floss threader: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtTCeehuSFw
I use a fleece mat on a flat table surface rather than hold the beads in my hand. You can get fleece fabric at any fabric store and cut a small square to use for beading.
