About the Pattern

My sister-in-law Faye set me a challenge. She asked for a black and white scarf with beading. This is what I came up with.

It has a lovely lacy effect, using Leaves of Grass stitch made using a mix of mohair and a sequinned strung yarn knitted together on large needles. The stripey effect in the pattern is formed by using the right number of stitches to the way the yarn has been space-dyed.

One of the yarns contains beaded sequins and, while this gives a lovely effect, it is not essential.

How it's done

To make this scarf I used a combination of 3 balls (Total 150 grams, about 375 metres) of ICE Yarns Mohair Black/Grey/White (Mohair/Acrylic) mix and 3 balls (Total 150 grams, about 570 metres) of ICE Yarns Beaded Sequins Black with multi-coloured sequins.

I knitted it using a pair of straight 6 mm (Canadian size 4/US Size 10 needles). The tension is not that important but should be around 4 stitches per inch.

Although I used a commercial yarn this pattern would also be suitable for any sort of fingering/sock weight yarn knitted with two strands held together or, alternatively, a chunky yarn such as a wool and silk mix. Although any other yarn suitable for use with a 6 mm/US10 needle size will do.

And How it Turned Out....
