Inspired by the beauty of sparklers on the 4th of July, beads add the perfect burst of fireworks to this soft, flowy scarf or stole.

Sparkler is a rectangular shaped scarf or stole in three sizes, worked flat from the short end. Beaded sparklers are added to both ends, with a bold motif marking the center of the piece. Bead patterns are charted only; beads are placed on both right side and wrong side rows using the crochet hook method.

Pattern is charted. To complete as shown, you will need 409 (617, 825) Size 6 silver lined clear seed beads; approx 28 (42, 55) grams (approx 15 beads/g) (bead count is more accurate than gram estimate); each bead “spray” in edging design takes 52 beads × 6 (10, 14) sprays; center motif takes 97 beads, all sizes
