Raspberries and Blueberries Scarflette

I got some delicious yarn for my birthday from Caroline. :-)

It is a mix of mohair and silk from Habu, probably my favourite yarn company. They have a huge range of unusual and high quality yarns that are lovely to work with and that make wonderful garments.

I've used Habu before in the blue Shosenshi shrug and the tiara and matching corsage I made last year and I am currently working on a lacy frost flower scarf with more Habu yarn.

This is a really versatile scarf because it's fairly 'skinny' and so soft.

You can wear it long:

Just tied:

It is simply knit in stocking stitch with three rows of beads crocheted into the fabric at one end:

Each row of beads is different. I've used pink lined clear beads, metallic pink beads and purple velvet iris beads:

This scarf is mine, but I will make more like this as they're perfect for Spring and Summer as they're so light and a brilliant way of adding a splash of colour.


  1. Wow, that has come out really beautiful! Must finish mine......

  2. I like the way you have incorporated beads into the scarf design Sybille.
