For this special lady I wanted to make something in a dark color that she would wear but that fit her taste for the sparkly and special. After picking out the yarn, I knew I wanted beads to add that extra something. After buying some beads (and then exchanging them for others), I threaded them onto the yarn and wove them in as a went. I was reassured by some lovely ladies on public transit who have complimented my knitting.
Because I didn't want to purchase beads for the entire scarf, and wanted to distribute them more towards the ends and away from the neck, they beads are concentrated at the end and become more and more distanced as they go up. You can get my pattern for free here.
