HeartStrings #H47 My Beading Heart Scarf »
InstructionsThis lightweight, sparkly fashion scarf is a double treat for lovers of lace and beaded knitting. The design features laceweight yarn in closely-toned hues that is doubled to achieve added richness and depth, not to mention the bonus of quicker knitting.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Classic, Traditional, Holiday
A combination of two closely-toned solid colors of Jaggerspun Zephyr wool/silk for subtle yet interesting color play that cannot be achieved by a single solid color alone. The yarn colors are Plum and Mulberry. The beads are Miyuki #2440 Transparent Gray Iris beads.
What was your inspiration?
Hearts, of course! And the play on words for a beating heart.
What are you most proud of?
Another double feature is the beading at each end of the scarf in different, yet coordinated designs to double your pleasure in the knitting and stylish wearing. The area between the pointed ends of the scarf transitions into a simpler bias lace with beads along the edges only, thus minimizing bulk and allowing the scarf to nicely pleat when wrapped about the neck.
