Kernel is a rectangular lace scarf knit in fingering weight yarn. Techniques include beading using a crochet hook and garter stitch grafting. The design is symmetrical: the scarf is worked from one edging through a long central panel; then, a second edging is knit and the two pieces are grafted together. The grafting is worked within a beaded garter stitch band.

Blocked dimensions are approx. 9.5 inches wide by 65-66 inches long. For a shorter scarf, work fewer repeats of the Kernel chart.
