This is a great time of year to wear red! This Bangle Bead Scarf from the October issue of Crochet World (you can purchase here ) works up very quickly with Berroco's Captiva yarn.
Captiva (see Ravelry page here ) has a lovely sheen and when paired with the silver scarf bails and beads shown here, makes for an eye-catching one-of-a-kind cowl.
(I recently wore this project over a mint green sweater and received several compliments.)
This Crimson Beaded Neck Wrap also makes a great Christmas gift or accessory to wear to a Christmas-themed event. This was crocheted with Caron's Simply Soft yarn and the edgings include glass beads. The instructions for this cowl can be found in the October issue of the digital magazine, I Like Crochet.
There is still time to make either one of these for someone you love this Christmas!
