Notes

Knitting with one strand of each yarn held together.

This will be my 2nd time knitting this pattern. This will be a bit smaller than my 1st as I don’t have as much yarn & even with 2 strands held together it’s quite thin.

Owls: 22
Stitches before increases: 190 (186 + 4 edges stitches)
Stitches after increases: 270 (264 + 4 edge stitches & 2 yo)
Cast on edge to beginning of owls: 5 inches
Beads: 50 6/0 Czech glass natural beads

I wanted to continue the look of the edge stitches into the owl section of the scarf, so keeping the K2 yo on every row of each edge.

Knit 6 rows after completing the owls. Had just enough yarn.

After blocking measurements: 41”x 8”
