Bead Skinny Skarf

from HeartStrings Knitting Patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Bead Skinny Skarf
Bead Skinny Skarf
Bead Skinny Skarf
Bead Skinny Skarf sample cover page

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over
  • stitch instructions are both charted and written

Pattern Description:

Bead Skinny Skarf is a play on words, reflecting on the fashion of cinching in a waist to look skinny. Bead Skinny gives the illusion of cinching the curvy lines of the faux eyelet cable with a pretty bead.

A bonus is pleasing reversibility thanks to how the ribbed texture surrounding the lozenges of eyelets and the beads are equally prominent on both the right side and wrong side.

Can you think of an easier way to be skinny?

Note: It's easy to make Bead Skinny Skarf longer if you want to. Each 16-row repeat of the Main Pattern will add about 2.5" for which you will need 3 more beads and approx 9 more yards of yarn.


Approx 6 stitches / inch over blocked stitch pattern

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 5" x 40"


  • 150 yards fingering weight yarn
  • Size US 6 (4 mm) knitting needles suggested

You Will Also Need:

  • 46 Crow Beads size 9 mm diameter by 6 mm height or similar large beads
