"New" Design - Roserock Ripple Scarf

This beautiful scarf is called "Roserock Ripple Scarf".  It is a beaded scarf crocheted in a chevron stitch alternated with rows of a chevron mesh that I developed.  I stitched the beads into every third ch-sp throughout the mesh.  I used Jojoland Melody, a 100% wool.  This yarn has beautiful subtle color changes throughout the skein that make this scarf even more beautiful.  It is not an extremely soft wool, but it is very pretty.  This is a fingering weight yarn.  The pattern is now available for $3.00 in my Etsy shop, and in my Ravelry Pattern store.  Every purchase is going towards my saving up to attend the Knit and Crochet Show in Minneapolis in July. 

I actually made this scarf last June.  I submitted it for publication in a magazine last June and never heard anything back from them.  Tired of waiting, I respectfully withdrew my desgin a few days ago, and it is now available for all of you!

This pattern stitch was one that I originally envisioned for a different design, that I am just now beginning to make.  One of the owners of my LYS suggested a long time ago that I use that pattern stitch for a beaded scarf.  That was pure genius!  I'm not sure that I would've thought of it myself, but look how it turned out -- just lovely!  A big thanks to Margaret of Gourmet Yarn Co. in Oklahoma City for such a great idea!

I hope that you all enjoy this pattern, and if anyone makes it, I would love to see pictures!

Happy crocheting!

April :)
