Off the needles: Pinstripe Scarf

I feel as if I've been working on this scarf forever! Finally decided it was long enough and finished it off.

The yarn is a purple yarn I got from Hinshaw's outlet in Burlington many, many years ago. (Alas, they closed decades ago.) Not sure of the brand, but the fiber content is 70% wool, 30% rayon. The 1000+ beads are iridescent crystals. The pattern is mostly stockinette with garter stitch edges. Even so, the edges wanted to roll so I added 2 rows of single crochet around the circumference to try to minimize the rolling. Below is a close-up of one of the ends,
