Crochet Fringed Cowl for Barbie with Beaded Trim -Free Pattern

I had so much fun making my knit fringed cowl for Barbie here I chose a different yarn and dug out a crochet hook! This time I decided to give it a little extra embellishment by adding some beads to the bottom. You'll be able to whip the cowl up in 15 minutes, the fringe will take a little time. And if you opt to add the beads, well, plan on a couple hour project just to give yourself time to finish. 

A pic of the cowls, knit and crochet side by side:
Disclaimer: Folks, I am ~not~ a student of the yarn arts... I've never been able to follow a pattern and just wing everything I do. The few stitches I did know, well, it's usually so long between the times I pick up a hook or needles... I forget them! So, please just try to use my instructions as a guideline, and if you have any helpful tips for others, feel free to leave them in the comments. Thanks.

What I did:
H hook, sport or baby weight yarn
Ch 20
Slip stitch together, be careful not to twist the chain.
Double crochet all the way around (I went into the top loop only).
Chain 3 at end and slip stitch into first loop.
Make one more round of double crochet.
Chain 3, slip stitch into first loop to complete the circle.

Cut 5" pieces of yarn. 
My beads are 1/4" and I made sure the yarn would fit through the hole. I would aim for all of the beads being the same color next time. Those 'green' ones are not that bright in real life😕
I used a needle threader, poked it through the hole in the bead. Thread the yarn through the wire and pulled it through the bead.
Poke small crochet hook through the back of the lowest loop of the cowl. Grab one piece of yarn and pull through bottom loop of cowl. Keep bead to the side, go back up and grab both strings of yarn and pull through the hole of yarn on the crochet hook. Gently snug the bead up to the bottom of the cowl. Trim the fringe to the desired length, I made this one waist length.

A cute idea that I'm sure girls would love!

  1. You always come up with great ideas. I can also see doing this with string, a smaller hook---and tiny beads---so much you could do with this idea! Hugs, Sandi
