This lace scarf can be knit in either light fingering weight or heavy laceweight yarn. Its two edgings feature a distinctive diamond motif enlivened by beads, while its central panel is made up of columns of yarn overs.
The scarf is worked in two pieces. First, the lower edging and body of the scarf are knit in one piece and set aside. Then a second edging is knit, and the two pieces are joined by garter stitch grafting.
The scarf takes its name from the visual impression of restless movement created by the shifting placement of decreases in the central panel.
The sample measured 8 1/2 inches x 50 inches before blocking, and 10 inches by 54 inches after blocking.
The 4-page PDF includes both written and charted instructions, as well as directions for placing beads and for garter stitch grafting. Charts and symbols key are on one page.
