The BLT (Basic Lace Triangle) scarf/shawl is designed for a beginner with the option of beading. It uses a simple repeating pattern and is great for learning how to use a chart. There are no difficult stitches used. The pattern is fully written and charted.

The BLT can be made to any size with any weight yarn. You can choose to do a ton of diamonds with just a touch of mesh, a few diamonds with lots of mesh, or any other ration that you find pleasing. The pattern works well with self-striping yarn, solids, and variegates.

The red scarf used about 200 yards of sock weight yarn on size 6 needles. It is measures about 36 inches across the top edge and is the perfect size for me to tuck the ends in under my jacket.
