This is the completed scarf that I had a WIP post for.  I changed the pattern a little bit but not much.  As I said in the previous post it has smaller beads than listed in the pattern.  I also skipped a few repeats because of the larger gauge so it wouldn’t get too wide.  The last change was to add an intentional twist on the joining of the round.  I don’t like infinity scarfs that don’t twist because I think they look funny at their lowest point.

This is a nice simple pattern with easy repeats to remember.  It is all knits and purls with the beads being the only element that took some work.

I did like working with beads for the first time.  I used the crochet hook method to attach the beads instead of pre-stringing them.  It was a little messy.  I keep finding these tiny beads in interesting places around the house.  Also I think this size of bead would work better with lace weight yarn.  It took quite a bit of patience to figure out how to get it on the fingering weight.  By the time I was done with the scarf I was pretty good at it.

Sadly the color of the scarf is not going to work with original outfit my sister had in mind.  However, she’s already thinking of other outfits should could use it with so it works out well.  Plus she might get an extra scarf out of it if I can come up with a good idea and color choice for her original outfit.
