Make a Beaded Scarf

Chakra Shawlette

I love lightweight, quick-to-knit scarves to wear this time of year.  Not long ago I spied this yarn from Mango Moon and knew we needed a sample made.

There are several free patterns on the Mango Moon website, and lots of interesting projects on Ravelry.

I decided I wanted something slightly wider in the center and tapered on the ends.  I found pictures of what I liked, but no instructions.  I had to make my own pattern!  You can make this in an evening or two.

Hope you enjoy it!

Beaded Shawlette

1 skein of Mango Moon Lepore or Chakra

Size 13, 32″ circular needles

Cast on 32 stitches.  Knit one row.

Row 2: Using the backward loop method, cast on 8 stitches then knit the rest of the row. Repeat Row 2 until you have 112 stitches. Continue to knit each row without further increases until about 5 yards of yarn remain.  Bind off loosely.  Enjoy!2014_04_16_0142

Wouldn’t you love to find this in your basket this spring?

Hope you can help us Celebrate Friday!

Happy Stitching!
