so. this is my first time posting something...it's a scarf i made a while ago but i'm just starting to get around to posting things. it's also the first freestyle crochet project that i really like. it's made from some wool from a local farm, as well as antique gold beads and faux pearls from a broken necklace.

that looks beautiful!  i've knit with beads before and had an akward time of it; did you have to string the beads on to the yarn before you started?

actually i sewed the beads on by hand afterwards...i've done other projects where i've strung the beads before hand but i find it to be a bit tedious. of course i didn't have the right materials, which i'm sure would make it easier.

I love the idea of sewing in the pearl beads.  I've got a ton saved up from a relative's old broken necklace that I want to do something with, and putting them on a nice crochet piece would be so nice.  Beautiful scarf!

sorry, there's not really a tutorial, since i just made it up as i went along. i guess you could say it's just a bunch of circles joined.
