Finished the Beaded Wedding Scarf
I finally finished it. It did not take as long as I thought it would, but of course I was overly eager to get it done. The pattern is fairly simple. I used 4 skeins of Lana Grossa Secondo in white (200 grams). I also used 4 containers (about 100) clear beads from Jo-Ann Fabric. They are 2/0 Czech Glass E-Beads from Beader’s Paradise.
This is my first pattern, so please bare with me.
String approximately 50 beads on. Cast on 78 stitches with size 6 needles. Gauge is approximately 6 stitches, 4 rows per inch but it is a stretchy yarn and pattern, so gauge is not necessary.
Row 1 – Purl 1, add one bead, Knit 4, Purl 1, add one bead, Repeat- continue to last stitch, add one Bead, Purl 1
Row 2 – Knit 1, Purl 4, Knit 1, Repeat till end.
Row 3 – Purl1, Knit 4, Purl 1, Repeat till end
Row 4- Repeat row 2
Continue this until you run out of beads, then continue without beads. When you get to the fourth skein, string the remaining beads (approximately 50). Repeat the four rows until you run out beads. Scarf should be about 20 inches wide when stretched out and 60 inches long.
