Everywhere I go my eye keeps catching sparkly, net-like scarves and shawls. This knit version is made with columns of eyelets through which sequins are woven.

If your local craft store doesnt have the color sequins you desire, a quick search on the net for single slung sequins will turn up many colors, shapes and sizes. Also try weaving ribbon through the scarf.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Width: 6.5 inches
Length: 50 inches (not including fringe)

MATERIALS
Ironstone Yarns [78% Mohair, 13% Wool, 9% Nylon; 89 yd per 40g skein];
color: Silver; 2 skeins

1 set US #10/6mm straight needles
6yds single slung sequins
Darning needle
Crochet hook

GAUGE
16 sts/18 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch

PATTERN
CO 27 sts.

Row 1: K3, yo, k2tog, *k2tog, yo, repeat from * two more times, k2 yo k2tog, *k2tog, yo, repeat from * two more times, k2, yo, k2tog, k2

Row 2: P

Row 3: K3, yo, k2tog, k1, *k2tog, yo, repeat from * one more time, k3, yo, k2tog, k1, *k2tog, yo, repeat from * one more time, k3, yo, k2tog, k2

Row 4: P

Repeat these 4 rows until scarf measure 50 inches. End with row 2. BO 27 sts.

FINISHING
Run yarns ends through scarf.

Cut sequins into three, 2yd strips. Use tape on the ends. Delicately weave sequins in and out of the three eyelet columns. Pull sequins taut to keep straight. 

Fringe
Wrap yarn lengthwise around a tape cassette case 4-5 times (one wrap is about 10 inches.) Cut yarn at one end. Insert a crochet hook from back to front on the edge of the scarf where the sequin strip is. With your clump of yarn folded in half, pull it partially through the scarf using the crochet hook. Pull the yarn ends through the loop. Before pulling tight, bring the end of the sequin through the back of the loop and then through the front of the first eyelet. Pull fringe tight. Repeat for other sequin edges and in between sequin strips. Trim fringe straight.

Sequin Finishing
To prevent sequins from falling off the ends (without using tape), carefully slide off a few sequins, leaving the threads. Double knot the threads.


Enjoy!

That, my friend, is a beautiful scarf. Definitely a must-try-to-knit in my book. *runs to check budget for yarn allowance*

Oh my gosh, that looks so intricate! It's gorgeous. And looks impossibly complicated for a frustrated beginning knitter like me! You should sell those...

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

Kimbabwe: If you can do YO and K2tog, then you can make this scarf. Really, the most difficult thing about it is remembering which row you're on.

what a great scarf idea! catching the sequins in the fringe knot is a clever strategy, too. i would have been fussing with handsewing. thanks for posting a full pattern.

LOL!  I guess we are just really, really spread out so none of us know each other.  For a long time I felt sort of proprietary about the name but now I love hearing about other Jordanas.  It's like being a part of an exclusive club!

AnjanaSofia: I think the yarn would be considered fingering weight.

k2tog?

what does this mean?
i know how to knit but i never learned abbreviations or how to follow a pattern.  Huh this is such a great looking scarf though, i've got to figure it out.


does anyone have any ideas for making a scarf similar to this using crochet?

k2tog means knit two stitches together...so instead of putting the right needle through one stitch to knit, you put it through the top two stitches on the left needle and then knit them.

hey everyone,
i saw this yarn on elann and it thought it might be good for the scarf.  i'm not positive if the gauge matches up, but i'm sure it can be fiddled with.  lots of nice, nice colors.

Jordana has saved Christmas!!  I have been looking for the perfect scarf to knit my mother-in-law this year and this is it.  Thank you so much for sharing the pattern.  And I love the perfect knitting bag, I may have to drop a hint to my husband about that one.

Such a wonderful idea!  The sequins or ribbon could be done nicely with nearly any lace patterned scarf.  The combination of the sparkle and the fuzzy yarn is the yummiest part.
