April Showers Scarf

A riff on Ice Queen. The yarn costs $13.95 and the beads another $2.00.

Materials: 1 skein Rowan Kidsilk Haze (I used color #592, Heavenly Blue)
1 packet size 6 seed beads (or more, if you like!)
size 6 needles

Cast on 48 stitches.

Rows 1 - 5: knit.

Row 6: knit 4, *yo, k2t. Repeat from * until last 4 stitches. Knit 4.

Repeat, placing beads randomly, until desired length.

For placing beads, I used the hooking-beads-as-you-go method, described here. You could easily establish a regular pattern of beads but I wanted them to look like random raindrops. Click either of the photos on this page to check that effect.
