I’ve been obsessed with the Shetland Lace Bird’s Eye stitch all spring (I call it the Hring Stitch in this pattern, which means Circle in Icelandic) and have wanted to use it in a lacy scarf, but it isn’t the easiest to work… so I made you two options for this scarf! You can work the Hring Stitch and be a bit challenged, or you can go easy on yourself and work the eyelet stitch. It is totally up to you!


  • Hring Scarf works with pre-strung beads on the bottom border, and place beads in the lace stitch. You can, of course, make it without the beads and it will be beautiful!
  • Hring Scarf is worked in two halves from the bottom up and grafted at the center.

Bead Info:
100 Size 6/0 glass seed beads Approx. 6-8 grams
Dental floss threader (for stringing beads
.8 mm crochet hook, Super Floss, or Beadle Needle (for placing beads)

Tiny Errata: K2tog is 1 st decreased, not 1 stitch increased as it says in the abbreviations! Silly me!
