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.
