Elegant Bead Lace Scarf or Stole Knit



Knit this elegant traditional lace pattern with strong diagonal lines, enhanced by the addition of beads. A lace weight yarn makes a great summer project, so light weight in your hand.  This is an accessory that can dress up any garment, and is the one I use most often. This project will kick your knitting skills up a notch, get all the tips and tricks for using a lace weight yarn.


Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details: Must be able to knit and purl, and read a pattern. Chart is included with the pattern, we will cover reading a chart, adding beads, and life lines. Stitch markers will change positions while knitting this project, but the pattern repeat is short.
Requirements: Pattern name is Bantham by Anniken Allis on Ravelry $6.50 (or in Interweave Knitting Traditions Magazine, Fall 2013, see cover and pages 10-12.) Lace weight yarn that will block well. Yardage will depend on size knit, 575-800 yds for the scarf, 900-1200 for the full shawl. Size 4 circular needle with a 32 inch cable as scarf is knit lengthwise. Beads size 8 seed beads. At least 2 tubes. Delicas are a type of bead that have very uniform shape and size. Japanese Miyuki or Toho are also very good. Choose beads that blend in with your yarn for a subtle sparkle or select contrasting beads for higher visibility. A size 14 or 15 steel crochet hook for adding beads (or use the small size Fleegle Beader my preferred method). Small amount of crochet thread in a neutral color to use as a life line.
