Knitted and beaded scarf Pattern

Here is my pattern for a beaded scarf. It's a fun and easy project, a great start for people wanting to start knitting with beads. I love combing my passion for beads with my addiction to knitting. Though, I do find that my hands tend to cramp up while knitting with beads for long periods of time so try to take frequent breaks while working.

Have fun and as always, feel free to post any questions or shoot me off an email!


Beaded Scarf

Pattern note: PB = Place Bead. With beads threaded on working yarn, bring the bead up to sit next to the last worked stitch.

Lace yarn tends to tangle easily. To avoid tangles around your beads, place the working yarn and the beads into a small box or container to keep things neat.

Materials: 400 yards of lace weight yarn, approx. 1,000 size 6/0 seed beads. Size 5 needles and big eye beading needle or dental threader.

Gauge is not crucial to this project.

Pattern 1

Row 1) K3, "PB, YO, K2tog” to last two stitches, K1.
Row 2) K2, “YO, K2tog” to last two stitches, K2.

Pattern 2

Row 1) K3 "PB, YO, K2tog” to last two stitches, K1.
Row 2) Knit all stitches
Row 3) K2, "PB, YO, K2tog” to last stitch, K2.
Row 4) Knit all stitches.

Pattern 3

Row 1) K3 "PB, YO, K2tog” to last two stitches, K1.
Row 2) Knit all stitches.

Directions:

With beading needle or threader, thread beads onto yarn.
With #5 needles, Cast On 22 stitches loosely.
Using any of the above knitting patterns, work scarf to desired length, or until out of beads.

Bind Off loosely using a larger needle.

    In all the 3 patterns the instruction for the first row is "....to last 2 stitches K1" What about the remaining stitch after K1? Do u slip it onto the right needle? Thanks.
