Banish the Blues! Scarf to crochet

This scarf did banish my blues from this never ending winter weather. I picked up a ball of Yarn Bee Fetching in turquoise, grabbed a size H (5 mm) crochet hook and started hooking. Found some 3/4" wooden craft beads with large holes in my stash and decided to use them on the fringe.

This is an easy one row scarf pattern that creates the fringe as you work each row. The ribbed look is from working in the back loops of the previous row. The ends taper to give the scarf a little more interest. Add beads to the fringe after you have finished the scarf. 

I used 300 yards of a light worsted/DK weight yarn for a scarf that measures 51" x 4.5" (excluding fringe). You could change it up by using a lighter weight yarn by changing the hook size to suit the yarn. Make it longer or shorter. Or narrower for more of a necklace type scarf.

After the scarf is done, slip a bead on each fringed loop and tie a knot under it to keep it in place.

This two page pattern has written instructions only. You can find it in my Ravelry pattern store.
