Pattern Description:

This scarf is knit in Americo Original's pima cotton lace. Americo Original yarns are manufactured in socially responsible mills in the Andean highlands of South America. Tugging My Heart Strings started with an sketch of a heart. Since I had a skein of gorgeous metal grey cotton calling at me from my stash and Valentine's Day was quickly approaching, I thought it would be great to set the hearts in lace and add beads for a touch of glamour. I used the same process as I developed for my Relaxed Petal Ruffle Scarf, but used hearts and lace instead of the petal.
