Beaded Mohair Scarf
Tiny glass beads sit like raindrops on the gossamer web of this simple garter-stitch scarf. Lacy loops at the edges are created as you go with a yarn-over at the beginning of each row. But the real secret to the beauty of this piece is in the finishing. Slip blocking wires through each edge loop and steam press gently—transformation!
Instead of pre-stringing the beads, we’ve chosen to add them as you knit with a tiny crochet hook. With this method, beads sit securely around both strands of your stitch and show equally on both sides of your fabric.
