What a gorgeous way to start the new year!
Sivia writes, " This stunning crescent shaped scarf, fetchingly strung with beaded hearts, is as sweet as pie!
"The scarf consists of the heart border, an easy garter stitch body, and a tubular edging, and is worked sideways from one narrow point to the other."
When I saw this one I gasped. Truly beautiful.
The design requires lace weight yarn -- 400 yards.
The original was done in 100% cashmere but any lace weight yarn will make a really amazing piece.
The beads can be size 8/0 or 6/0 or even the 4mm megatamas (which is what Sivia used on the original.) The beads are placed with the crochet hook method throughout, so don't forget this marvelous tool if you need it -- we generally carry a good selection on our "hooks & needles" web page of these ultra-thin crochet hooks -- you want one about 0.6mm (email me if you have any trouble finding them).
The original used size 3 US (3.25mm needles) -- just so you have a good starting point.
This is a real beauty -- and Sivia writes wonderful directions.
A fun knit that will please you for a long time to come.
