For this class I wanted to design a scarf incorporating both methods. And so I have designed my first ever original scarf.
The bottom of the scarf is ribbed and the beads have been strung on to be placed between the purl stitches. Once the ribbing is done the beads are placed using a crochet hook.
I opted not to use beads over the entire length of the scarf - just placing on the bottom quarter of the scarf so to not have any scratchiness around the neckline.
As I seem to do, I waited until the last minute to finish so I blocked my scarf the day of the program and was fortunate that the 100 degree weather dried my scarf on the blocking board when I placed it outside. My friend Cheryl had suggested a hairdryer and fortunately I didn't have to succumb to that.
There was 30 attendees for the beading program and I do think everyone went home happy.
I can't wait to see next month how many have finished their scarf.
