I won this gorgeous handspun merino plied with beaded string on ebay but there was only 100 yards so I decided to make a small version of the "crossover scarf" on knitty gritty (http://www.diynet.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_3520331,00.html).  I was also thinking about that article on summer scarves in the summer Vogue Knits - there was the same drop stitch crossing method for one of those scarves.  So I thought I'd give it a try. 



It's a neat method and looks a lot more complicated than it really is.  This yarn is sooooo soft.  Kind of hard to see the beads.  There aren't too many, just enough to add some interest.



I posted more about the scarf and my first attempts at spinning on my website too!

(oh, wanted to add that I knit this on 8s rather than the larger needles in the pattern)

that scarf looks really nice in that yarn and made narrow like that--the version I saw on tv I didn't like so much ( although the stitch is pretty)as it didn't hang nicely.

I missed that episode of Knitty Gritty, but your scarf sure is pretty!  (Ugh, I did not intend for that rhyme!)  Anyway, it looks really nice, kinda dressy, no?
