I used Knit Picks Andean Silk in Navy.  The medallionish beads are silver and brown.  I took apart an old bracelet.  I didn't want a lot of length with the beads.  I am working on another one in Knit Picks Shine Twist in Seaside.  This scarf has wonderful drape.  I am especially excited about it.  I will post pics when I am done.  Sorry to be such a late joiner but I couldn't resist.

The edges of my scarf curled in quite a bit until I blocked it.

Hullo! I'm belatedly jumping in to this craftalong. I want to knit something fancy and lacy for my mom for Christmas, so I'm trying to teach myself to knit lace!

I've started and then unravelled one go already, but I'm perservering. I'm so inspired by everyone's gorgeous scarves!

Sewer Rat, I have to say, my jaw drapped a little lower each page as I saw all of your awesomeness. I'm both frightened and impressed... :p

Mayerlove, the scallop-y part of my alpaca scarves curled a lot and blocking helped.

Faerietail, don't give up.  You can do it.  It just takes practice.  This is a great pattern for learning lace.  It'll get easier and easier for you.  After a while it'll become clear to you what comes next in the pattern.  It also really helps to use a lifeline.  I've made about ten of these and am working on 4-5 more.  (Yes, I'm an obsessive person.  Last weekend I cut out fabric for seven shirts and sewed five of them!!!)  Good luck and I can't wait to see your mom's Christmas present!

Hi. Can anyone tell me how much I will need for this scarf. I will probably use either DK or worsted. Thanks.

I've used sport weight for my scarflets.  I used 130 yds (or was it 260?).  My last functioning brain cell is ... uggghhhhhh....

Here is my current scarf in sport weight.  It will have used about 220 yards.

All the scarves are so pretty! Smiley

I just started mine tonight in a raspberry colored acrylic. No pics yet though. Sad
