A Beaded Bias Towards Lace Scarf
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A60
The simplest of lace patterns knits naturally on the bias to make a scarf with chic diagonal ends. The bias design is a striking use of hand-painted yarn. Optionally trim your scarf with a simple crochet beaded edge.
Allow 325 yards of fingering weight or finer yarn for 6½" x 68" scarf, or desired width and length with yardage adjustment. 6½ stitches/inch, size US 5 / 3.75 mm needles suggested. 15 g size 8/0 seed beads for optional beaded trim. Written stitch instructions.
A Beaded Bias Towards Lace Scarf shown below demonstrates using a highly textured yarn for knitting the scarf. For the beaded edging, I used a supplemental yarn/thread of black silk to crochet the beads onto the edge of the scarf (since the textured yarn cannot be pulled through the beads). I think the black is a nice backdrop to the metallic of the beads without detracting from the nice color of the yarn in the main portion of the scarf. What do you think?
