''The Whispering Tundra Scarf''Knit from 100% pure qiviut 2 ply lace weight yarn.This is one of the first scarves i made and fell in love with the soft qiviut yarn.The simple design makes for easy knitting on the go. Knit with a repeat lace stitch that's easy to remember.
The beads are added to the hem strung in groups of 3 so they hang down over the edge and beads are added in a random fashion over the rest of the scarf again in groups of 3.
I have knit scarf twice. The very first time i knit with lace weight 2ply qiviut on a 5mm needle, follow the pattern below on 5mm's . The lace was very open and floaty
(i think i prefer it that way) the second time i knit it using 3.75mm gives a closer stitch that is more defined and firmer but requires 3 balls-66 grams or 480 yards.
If you want a floaty open lace then 5mm's is the way to go !
Supplies: 44 grams - 2 balls of lace weight qiviut-you can use our 'magical qiviut'' yarn or ANY of our 2ply lace weight blends. To see our yarns vistit our site:www.cottagecraftangora.com
Has to be a 2ply lace weight though to get the same lacey effect !
