Bias 'Before & After' Scarf Pattern
We dubbed this scarf 'before & after' because it's so ugly (truly!) before it's blocked and so beautiful after. Knitted on the bias, this light, airy scarf has the smooth simplicity of stockinette stitch without all the rolling at the edges. The pattern includes simple instructions for adding beads at the ends.
Approx. 8 x 94" / 20 x 239 cm, after blocking.
1 skein Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace (460 yds / 420m); shown lower right and center in Color HP-2468 (variegated) and lower left and center in Color 2438 (solid). Or approx. 460 yds / 420m of an equivalent lace-weight yarn.
