I have less than 3 months till my wedding day and I have so much left to do! My dress is finally here and I now I can finally think about what the heck I am going to wear for outdoor pictures in march. I found this lovely wrap on etsy but it is very expensize…I’ve knitted before so I think I can accomplish it but…how do you get the sequins in there?
This would be perfect – my bridesmaids are wearing gold sequins and I already bought them ivory pashminas to wear…I was going to look for a sequin jacket but I can’t find any cute ones…
Sorry for so many details…anyone knnow how I could make this myself??

Super pretty – I’m going ot move you from Flowers to Accessories, hopefully you get some replies! I’m sure someone here knows how to make that (or who on etsy to check out!)

I don’t. But I wonder if you looked at some places like Target/Forever 21/TJ Maxx you may be able to find something similar? It’s pashmina AND sequin season so you might find a good deal!
IF you did knit it, I bet you can find a tutorial online, but maybe you just knit a very wide scarf, no fringe, and sew the sequins in individually with a matching thread? That would be my guess.

@antisocialite: I crochet and this is what I was kind of thinking….. I’d crochet (or in OP’s case since she knows how to knit) the entire thing first, and then go back to add the sequin detailing. =)

@KristMar0814: This looks like a knit scarf probably using yarn similar to this (3rd down) using a large needle (probably 8mm-10mm)

@KristMar0814: You can buy yarn with the sequins attached as a pp has shown, or you can randomly knit sequins in as you go.
For this you’ll need a crochet hook that’s small enough to go through the holes in your beads or sequins. When you come to a stitch that needs a bead on it, knit it. Put the crochet hook through the hole and grab the just-completed stitch, pulling it through the bead. Put the loop on the right needle, and continue to the next stitch that needs embellishment. It’s really as simple as that. Sequins may need a bit of encouragement to lie flat, but they shouldn’t give too much trouble.
