Janie Crow: Hollicarrs is a beautiful crochet scarf with a subtle bead pattern that enhances its lovely drape. The project could be worn as a traditional scarf or a smart shawl and I love the way the beads catch the light. The beads are added into the stitch as you crochet using the half treble stitch (US half double). You can find a YouTube video that shows the technique by following this link.
This lace and bead scarf design was originally published in Rachel Atkinson's book Daughter of a Shepherd: Volume One. The pattern was written for a DK weight of yarn, but has now been updated using 4 ply. If you choose to make it in a yarn other than Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply please make sure you calculate the yarn amounts and work a tension piece first.
The pattern includes written and charted instructions in UK terminology.
