If beading the cowl, pre-string the required number of beads onto the outside strand of the skein before casting on.

This is a helpful U-Tube video for stringing beads onto the yarn using a dental floss threader:
I prefer to use a fleece mat on a flat table surface rather than hold the beads in my hand. Fleece fabric is available at any fabric store. Cut a small square to use for bead stringing.

The Cherry Blossom Cowl was designed for Twisted Loop Yarn Shop in Prior Lake, MN, for the 2015 MN Yarn Shop Hop.
