Viridian is a lacy treat! Envolve yourself in lace with just a touch of shimmer with beads on the edging.

The full colour (b&w compatible) pattern provides you with written and chart instructions, customising tips and tutorial links for blocking and bead placement - nothing is left to the imagination!

Worked in one piece from beaded edge to beaded edge, its easy to remember pattern will stick with you - make one this winter while sipping hot cocoa or make it when spring is coming up, ensuring your neck is always tended to by this yarn’s soft touch.

This scarf can be made as big or small as you wish - just add extra 18-st pattern repeats for added width or knit on for length.
