We are so glad to be able to offer this beauty!

This delicate lace scarf was designed by Susan Pierce Lawrence. It has a wonderful vine-y leaf pattern running through it, inspired by a prolific tomato vine in the garden.

She writes "It’s a great project for that one-of-a-kind, hand-painted merino sock yarn in your stash." Indeed what truly makes this pattern unique is that it can be done in either lace-weight (requiring 400 - 420 yards) or in fingering weight (for only 300 - 320 yards).

You can happily substitute beads in place of the nupps in this pattern.

Let me explain -- nupps resemble bobbles and are made by increasing into a stitch on the right side and then purling 5 stitches together on the wrong side). The design features nupps to symbolize the tomatoes on the vine. Susan writes, "I used size 6/0 beads. You will need 10 (6) beads for each repeat of the 20 row lace pattern. I like to place beads using the crochet hook method but any method will work."

So what do we need here?

The original lace weight version used 18 repeats, so would require 10 x 18 = 180 beads.

The original fingering weight version did 15 repeats, so would require 6 x 15 = 90 beads.

Each additional repeat of the pattern adds 3.5 more inches to the lace weight version and 4 more inches to the length of the fingering weight version. and of course, needs some more beads.

If you need the crochet hook to add the beads, take a look at the link below -- these will work perfectly.

A gorgeous pattern, plus beautiful yarn, and stunning beads -- what could be better?
