Remember Perlé? First released as part of KnitCircus Gifts 2011, copyright has reverted back to me and I can make it available to you!
At Rhinebeck the folks at Bijou Basin Ranch were lovely enough to give me a skein of Lhasa Wilderness, a stunning 75% yak/ 25% bamboo yarn that I have fallen deeply for. I am a sucker for neutrals and this mocha color does not disappoint! I had such fun playing with the beads in my stash to find ones that would coordinate without being too "showy", this version is not all about the bling!
Perlé is a scarflette that is worked in two halves and kitchener stitched together. An optional slit is incorporated so that the scarf can “lock” into place around your neck. Beads are worked in two different ways on this pattern: the edge beads are pre-strung and worked on the first knit stitch of each row; the interior beads are placed onto their stitches with a crochet hook or super floss. The pattern includes instructions and links to videos that will help you learn these beading techniques if they are new to you!
Fibre Company's Road to China Light in Lapis. I designed Perlé to be used with luxury one skeins yarn like these... I know we all have them in our stash just waiting for the perfect pattern... right?
