The Perfect Spring Scarf
I recently finished the Tri-Color Beaded Scarf by C2Knits. This was a satisfying knit: short and sweet, great TV knitting once the beads were on, and it included the opportunity to expand my beaded-knitting repertoire. I only added beads onto the ends, but they could have easily been worked throughout the entire scarf.
My favorite part of this quick knit is that the beads at the ends of the scarf add the perfect amount of weight to hold the scarf in place. Especially with the shimmering, bamboo-blend yarn, I feel like I'm wearing more of a piece of jewelry and less of a knitted accessory. This scarf is perfect for spring days as well as cool summer evenings (here in northern New Mexico at least). It would also make a great Mother's Day, teacher or "just because" present!
Pattern: Beaded Tri-Color Scarf by C2 Knits
Yarn: Louisa Harding Jasmine, one skein (for about 52 inches)
Needle Size: US 6

I hope all are continuing to enjoy our wonderful spring weather.
