Easy Beaded Scarf
Have you ever wanted to learn how to knit with beads? Learn the basics of knitting with beads and knit this simple, yet elegant, Easy Beaded Scarf. This is a very easy pattern from which to learn a bead knitting technique.
Selvage edge stitches at the beginning and end of each row will also be used in this project. The scarf is approximately 4 1/2” wide x 48 ” long, using approximately 200 yards of any dk weight yarn. Prestring 6/0 TOHO seed beads before knitting.
For a longer scarf, select additional yardage and continue in the pattern.
This is a helpful You-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.
The pattern has been updated to include an alternative size using size 6 needles, approximately 300 yards of dk or sport weight yarn and approximately 1,000 beads.
