Pattern Description:

Beetle Tracks is a simple lace and cable scarf, perfect for small amounts of soft yarn! Shorter than a typical scarf, it's still long enough to wrap around once the neck and secure. The stitch pattern is simple to memorize and becomes very soothing after a time. If you've never done cables or lace, this is a gentle start in each. Quick gift knits, and once you're used to the repeats, a perfect TV project!

Pattern instructions are both written and charted, to accommodate different comfort levels.
