COBO Sparkles

After much interruption due to travel, celebrations and daily life, COBO is completed.  COBO was first introduced to you in this post.  New information is added to the pattern now that it is completed.


Suggested Yarn:  1 50 gr ball Crystal Palace Yarns Sausalito.  Sample is color #8107
Needle:  US 4 - 3.5mm.  A nice sharp/lace point is beneficial
Beads:  110 - 120  beads to match yarn
Crochet Hook (optional) for adding beads

Option 1:  String beads on yarn.  This will require constantly sliding beads along yarn which can be cumbersome.
Option 2:  Using a crochet hook that will fit through hole in beads, beads will be added as the project is worked.  Check YouTube for video instruction if you need a refresher on how to add beads with a crochet hook.

Cast On 24 stitches
R 1  *Place bead, Bind Off 12 stitches,  knit to the end  (bead will be at end of fringe)
R 2   Knit 12, Cast On 12 stitches.
R 3   Bind Off 12 stitches, knit to the end
R 4   Knit 12, Cast On 12 stitches.
Repeat these 4 Rows.  Bead is placed at end of every 2nd fringe.

Last Row: When scarf is desired length, or there is only one bead remaining, it is time to Bind Off thusly:  *Place bead, Bind Off all stitches.

Weave in all ends.  Voila!
