Scarf Embellishment with Sequins and Beads

Standard

Enhancing a simple knit scarf

A little project I was asked to do was to jazz up this hand knit scarf. A few sequins and beads later I came up with this. It’s quite a trend to have sequins sewn onto knitted accessories so for sure this is not ‘new’. But if you do this yourself it will definitely be unique.

To do this technique tie your sewing thread to the scarf where you would like the sequin. Thread your sequin and bead onto the needle and push to the fabric. Thread the needle back through the sequin and tie off below. Try not to go too deep through the scarf as you don’t want the thread showing on the other side. If your sequins aren’t too spaced you can do more than one at a time by threading your cotton through the scarf so that it can’t be seen. Do several of these and tie off securely.

Add some tassel with leftover yarn from your project. Add in a bit of coloured yarn to tie in the colours and you have a completely overhauled scarf!
