Party Lace

I seem to be alternating between doilies and scarves. Maybe the quick-to-knit scarves offset the attention needed for doilies.

In any case, this is the Party Lace Scarf from the departed MagKnits. MagKnits may be gone but, fortunately, the pattern is available on Ravelry. The yarn is one skein of Crystal Palace Kid Merino (240 yards), knit on US6 needles. The finished size is 7 inches by 58 inches. Each end has a row of 4mm turquoise crystal beads. I am fortunate that my local bead store, the Bead Factory, lets me "try on" beads, allowing me to string them on my yarn so I can see how things will look.
