Pattern: Melusine lace scarf

Finished: Melusine Scarf

This beaded lace scarf pattern is knitted with light fingering weight yarn and 6/0 seed beads. The lace pattern is relatively simple, and this scarf can be knit very quickly. The entire scarf is knitted in one direction; no grafting necessary!

The pattern contains both stitch-by-stitch written instructions and charts, so you can use whichever type of instruction you prefer.

(Etsy and craft-fair sellers: This pattern may be used to knit up to 20 scarves for sale. If you wish to sell more than 20 of them, please contact me for licensing terms.)

Materials needed:

200-240 yards of light fingering weight yarn. The yarn called for is Brooklyn Handspun Signature superwash merino. I used roughly half a skein.

US6/4.0mm needles.

25g of 6/0 glass seed beads.

Gauge:
Not vital for this project; I suggest starting to knit the first part, then doing a partial blocking. If you like the look and drape of the lace, go ahead with it.

Skills:
Intermediate knitting; this is a relatively easy lace, and the lace stitches are only on one side of the fabric.

You can purchase this pattern for $5.50 via this link:

Finished: Melusine Scarf

It’s done!

The Melusine scarf is done! Here it is. I would like to get some better pics when I get a chance.

The pattern is coming soon! If you like this and want to knit it, keep your eye right here; I’ll be posting about it when the pattern is done.

Tech specs:

  • Brooklyn Handspun Signature fingering yarn, about half a skein (240 yards)
  • US 6 needles
  • 24 grams size 6/0 seed beads (I didn’t need all of them), and three larger beads for the tassels

Scarf was 54″ long pre-blocking, and it is 72″ long x 5.5″ wide now.

I am very happy with the way it turned out!
