Dainty fairy motifs at one end of this scarf transform into flowers at the other end. Bead embellishment defines the fairy heads and flower buds. Taking advantage of the natural bias of the lace stitch patterns, a scalloped edging frames the entire piece.
I envisioned a design of ethereal fairies that would combine textured stitches and beads. For the fairies, a cable twist and eyelets define the body and wings, while a bead (placed with the crochet hook method) represents the head.
Special Techniques Used and Described in this pattern:
. Placing a bead with a crochet hook
. 5-stitch cable with center upright stitch
. Chain stitch selvedge
. Bind off with k2togtbl
23 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches over blocked lace stitch pattern
