HELPFUL HINT: I used transparent beads so this required that I use a white or off white color of yarn. I don’t suggest using transparent beads with a colored yarn.
When working with beads, they get very heavy on your strand of yarn and can become very awkward until they are all used within the piece you are crocheting. I put approximately 100 beads on the strand before I began crocheting. You can put half that amount and work the scarf until you run out of beads, cut yarn and finish off the tail, then add the remaining 50 beads to the fresh yarn end and begin crocheting where you left off. Make sure you always skip the first stitch on the edge of each row. I wouldn’t suggest cutting the yarn and adding the remaining beads UNLESS when you tie the two pieces of yarn together, your beads can slide over the knot.
When your un-used string of beads get close to the scarf, pull more yarn from your skein and slide the string away from the piece you are crocheting.
THREAD ONTO YOUR YARN 2 BEADS FOR EACH ROW THAT YOU WANT BEADS ON. BEAD STITCHES ARE WORKED ON WRONG SIDE OF SCARF SO THEY WILL APPEAR ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCARF.
