I decided to make a luxurious scarf for myself and it became the Amethyst scarf. The project is worked with a larger needle and a symmetric pattern that goes well with a multicolored skein.

The scarf is knitted flat with lace worked on both the right side and the wrong side.

Yarn - I’ve used the beautiful blend of purple, Violets 9999, from Manos del Uruguay in their fingering weight Manos Silk Blend Fino, 246 yards. (I had about 4 grams left when I finished.)

Beads - I used two sets of beads: 20 beads in a larger size (6 mm) in pure amethyst, and 160 smaller beads (2-3 mm).

Needles - 6 mm (US 10) needles. I’ve used interchangeable circulars and two wires (since it’s knit in two pieces); if you use different needles you will need scrap yarn/a stitch holder to place the live stitches on when knitting the second half.

Crochet hook - 0.6 mm crochet hook for placing beads.

Darning needle - for grafting the pieces together.

Your own version
The chart is easy to adjust to your own choice of repeats. Row 1-6 make up the ”pillar” pieces and row 7-14 make up the lilies.

If you wish to make a ”non-mirrored” version, you can work the repeats the whole scarf through, ending with repeating row 1-6 and then 6 rows of garter stitch before binding off.

My good friend suggested you can add one or two ”pillars” to make the scarf wider, turning it into a stole instead.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing your version!
