The lace pattern used in the pointed ends of this scarf resembles the nib of a fountain pen and the strong lines in the main section are representative of ruled notepaper. The scarf is worked in a lightweight, 100% silk yarn with a tweedy texture. If you substitute yarns, I recommend a yarn with silk or linen content.
The scarf is knit in two identical pieces and joined at the center. You can either graft the two ends, or join them with a three-needle bind off.
The lace pattern incorporates a stitch called a nupp. The nupps can be replaced with beads. I like to place beads using the crochet hook method.
Worked at the suggested gauge and in the suggested yarn, the finished scarf measures approx. 68 inches long (measured from point to point) and approx. 12 inches wide after blocking.
The lace pattern is represented in chart form only. There are no line-by-line written instructions.
