Finished object: ta da! Started here and very pleased with the result :-) Decided to get fancy with some multicoloured beads to go with the whole vibrant boho look, as well.
I threaded the beads on and crocheted them into the last row on the two shorter sides, then added a slightly bigger red sputnik glass bead on both corners. Cape Town gets windy in winter, you know!- don’t want my scarf getting blown off….
Gorgeous! The beads are the final fabulous touch to make this more than just a scarf, it’s a piece of wearable art :-)
Well, the yarn gets all the credit :-) I really loved working with all the different colours, made it seem to work up even more quickly.
The yarn can’t take the credit for the lovely beads…
What a lovely colourful scarf and the extra heavy beads sound like a good idea.
Thanks, all the colours of the rainbow :-)
Beautiful scarf, love the colours and beads. You are such a creative sweetie pie.
I love it Jill!!!!
Looks beautiful! The colours are so pretty and the needs are added bonus.. love that big bead at the end.
Thanks, Alison xx
Absolutely stunning! I’m so happy you were able to try some Opal. It’s difficult to find here too, but oh such a joy to work with! I’m hoarding a half skein leftover from several years ago for just the ‘right’ project. Love that you added the beads too! xox
Yeah, I have a tiny ball left over, probably weighs about 23 grams. A little flower, maybe…. <3
Hey! That turned out pretty cool, I really like the beads you added. You should write down what you did, might be a good pattern to have on hand for gifts or to sell.
On another note, I have been writing you, so if you aren’t getting my mails maybe I ended up in your spam folder or some nonsense like that.
I was pleased with the bead idea, too. Sometimes I’m good at spur-of-the-moment things!!! Just sent an email – apologies :(
