Perlé, a beaded scarflette, is worked in two halves and kitchener stitched together. An optional slit is incorporated so that the scarf can “lock” into place around your neck. Beads are worked in two different ways on this pattern: the edge beads are pre-strung and worked on the first knit stitch of each row; the interior beads are placed onto their stitches with a crochet hook or super floss. The pattern includes instructions and links to videos that will help you learn these beading techniques!
