Bead accents nestle within a honeycomb of colorful knit fabric. Self-shaping edges, along with a pleasingly reversible textured knit/purl design, make this scarf fun to knit and wear.
This project is good for the advancing beginner because the row has a small number of stitches and the stitch pattern is easy to see and memorize. Peek-a-Bead will also appeal to the skilled knitter looking for some relatively mindless knitting yet something to retain the interest.
* textured knit and purl for pleasing reversibility
* undulating movement of color (to emphasize yarn with long runs of color)
* self-shaping edges
* and of course beaded accents here and there to add to the interest, rather than detract from the flowing colors of the yarn
Construction: worked flat in rows from one end to the other in one piece, no sewing or grafting
