Aventina is a sumptuous scarf, oversized so that you may wrap it around yourself more than once and still have fabric to hang down.  Aventina is worked in two halves and grafted at the middle.  Beads are placed onto double decreases with a crochet hook OR dental floss.  

I have tutorials for both the Kitchener Stitch and placing beads.. grab a cup of tea and enjoy!
