Latus is a garter stitch short row scarflette with beads outlining each section of the scarf. The short row sections are built one triangle at a time and stack one on top of the other. Once the first half is finished, it is set aside while the second half is worked with a revised buttonhole, then the two halves are grafted together.
A private video link is included in the pattern that will help you learn how to work the short row sections with beads... it's not complicated and the video makes it down-right easy!
This first version is worked with Madeline Tosh Sock, in Alazarin. Alazarin is an unbelievable color, it reminds me of a gorgeously glazed piece of pottery....
This second version is worked with Noro Silk Garden Sock in col #S264. The color changes in the silk garden coincided PERFECTLY with the short row sections which made this an addictive knit as I just had to see how the next section would work out.
I chose to only place beads (Magatama fringe beads again) on the bottom edge as the Silk Garden is bit thicker and the size 6 beads didn't slide as well. Also, I thought the color changes were enough to define each short row section.
Wondering how it looks flat? Here it is on my favorite rock!
A HUGE thankyou goes out to Colleen, Kate, Fiona and Nathania... this pattern really needed your attention, and needles! Ladies, I owe ya!
