Eventide

Eventide is seriously one of my favorite beaded scarves ever!  Eventide is based an an incredibly easy 6 stitch "cross stitch" pattern.  It is made by working double yarnovers that add length to your stitches so they float and appear to be woven not knitted.  My inner weaver loves this!  Beads are used on each end of the scarf creating an arrow of bling!  The pattern includes lots of info on working with beads, including: stringing beads, purling and knitting with beads, working yarn-overs with beads, and more.  There is a KAL in the Nelkin Designs Group on Ravelry that has excellent support and encouragement.
