Grace Crochet Scarf

The Grace crochet scarf was designed to take advantage of the fabolous Louisa Harding Beaded Grace which is a silk blend yarn with beads already added.
 I made a single colour version and a two colour version:
 I always wondered what Grace would look like in other beaded yarns. I got some pink mohair blend beaded yarn a while ago. I thought it was Artyarns but I bought it from Loop London and they don't stock it. Looking at their website it looks like Tili Thomas Symphony.
 I did a few modifications as this yarn is much thinner than the original. I used 4mm crochet hook and did one row more of the chain trellis and on the last 2 rows I did double trebles instead of trebles. I've still got quite a bit of yarn left. Perhaps enough to make another one. I know someone who might like this as a present
Grace is a quick project for experienced crocheters and a great project for novice crocheters. The beaded yarn can be a challenge to work with so I do recommend practicing the stitches in a plain yarn first, especially if you're fairly new to crochet.

I'm teaching the Grace Crochet Scarf workshop at Spin A Yarn tomorrow (Tue 10 July). I think there may still be a couple of spaces left, so if you fancy joining me, contact the shop to book.
