It’s so hot in Dallas in the summer, that it’s difficult to find a a scarf one can endure around one’s neck; then, I discovered a pattern for a skinny scalloped scarf. My crochet scarf scalloped edge differs in the type of yarn used (Berroco Ultra Silk – 20% silk, 40% rayon, and 40% nylon), and I added silver beads to the double crochet stitch in the scallop to give this accessory a “jeweled” look. Since the scarf is skinny, it doubles as a necklace and a scarf. I made this up in a couple of hours, so it’s the perfect pattern for a quick-to-crochet gift.
When you review the pattern (linked above), you’ll see that the designer added a note for creating a slightly wider scarf. I did crochet the extra row, and I like the results. If you haven’t crocheted with beads, I think you’ll find this video helpful.
In order to the get the bead at the tip of the double crochet, I pulled the yarn through 2 loops, and then I pushed the bead up, and then pulled the yarn through for the last 2 loops.
I can’t wait to wear this!
