Rainshadow - This lengthwise-worked garter stitch scarf in two colors offers a beautifully rhythmic knit. Little short-rowed color insets adorn one side of the ram’s horn shape, while stripes and eyelets wind their way up and around the long curve. Shaping is accomplished with a combination of short rows and judiciously placed decreases. Beads are placed with the crochet hook add-as-you-go method. Enjoy!

Bead requirements: 390 size 6 seed beads or 4 mm magatama beads.

Pattern requires two colors, 1 skein of each color. Actual yardage was 278 yds Yarn A, 273 yds Yarn B. Please have more yards available to make your scarf as differences in knitting style may require you to use more yarn than I did in my sample.

a Rainshadow KAL is in progress in the Sivia Harding Ravelry forum. Join us! Anyone posting pictures will be in the running for prizes and free patterns. KAL will end on June 17, 2014.

Errata: On page 4, the third paragraph from the end in the second column states that the row chart is on page 5. This should state that the row chart is on page 6. I apologize for any confusion.
