With just one skein of yarn, you can make two of these fabulously easy Falling Snow Scarves. Gauge is not important in this scarf knitting pattern, so don't stress! Clear beads mixed in with the blue yarn resemble fresh drops of snow, giving it that extra special detail to separate it from other scarf knitting patterns. You won't believe how many compliments you will receive when you wear this knit scarf out and about. This knit scarf is easy, earthy and too awesome not to try out.

I am confused right at the start of the instructions for this scarf. The first step says to pre string the beads onto the yarn. How many beads are even used in this project and how are we supposed to know how many to string without running short halfway through? Not a very good tutorial.

I like this pattern and will probably make it. I will thread the beads as I go - there is a way to do it with a crochet hook. I find it gets too confusing to thread the yarn beforehand. I like the design of the "ascot" because there are yarn overs after you put the bead on resulting in a lacy effect. Thank you for the pattern.

I love Vicki Howell. When I was learning to crochet and knit, her patterns were the ones that inspired me the most because back then there were tons of old fashioned designs and she was one of the designers that made trendy things you actually wanted to wear. After all that time, she still continues to make unique and wearable designs. I really like how she incorporates the silver beaded stripes with stitch pattern in this scarf, especially against the dark blue yarn. It is an everyday scarf, with a pop of glitz.

This is a pretty pattern but I just have one question. The pattern calls for "glass beads" but doesn't say what size or type of glass beads. There are so many types of beads that I wouldn't know what to get, other than something that fits on the yarn, I guess. Anyone know what size to get?

But where oh where is the Falling Snow scarf? I've searched for it 3 times and keep finding the Dewey Scarf. Help???

Hello dsbranson 3684103! We use both names for this scarf interchangeably, so you have found the right pattern. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

If you put a bead every stitch doe 9 rows at each end of the scarf, excluding the end stitches, that would be 450 beads. BUT you always have the option to do it for only 8 rows and that would take 400 beads....or you could only put a bead every other stitch, then it would only take 224 for 9 rows or 200 for 8 rows. Or you could always do every stitch for only 2 rows on each end than it would only take 100 beads. Do the's not rocket science.

I really want to knit this beautifyl scarf. How many beads do I need to put on???Any help is much appreciated

Hi catknipnd 1279824 - The number of beads most likely depends on the number of rows you are making, however we suggest that you contact the designer for further clarification. -The editors of AllFreeKnitting

Just one problem with the pattern. How many beads? That is not listed in the instructions
