Free knitting pattern: Fire Beads Scarf in Yarnspirations Patons Peak yarn by Underground Crafter | A simple stitch and a textured yarn combine to add pops of color to a cozy accessory.The Fire Beads Scarf uses a very simple stitch pattern and a funky, textured yarn to create a really interesting scarf with pops of color. This scarf is a great pattern for a beginner knitter, since it uses just knits and purls, but it’s also a great binge watching or “mindless” project for a more advanced knitter.

If you’re new to working with textured yarns, you may find that it helps to choose needles that are slightly larger than what you’d typically use for a yarn of that thickness. This will help keep your tension a bit looser so you won’t be struggling to pull the thicker pieces through the stitches on your needle.
