This reversible double-sided lace scarf features beads that graduate in color inside each wave of the lace stitch. The beads are prestrung in a sequence so that they fall in the correct place. You can use just one color bead, if you desire, and it will still be gorgeous!
Sometimes I look back on previous designs and suddenly see how to work them differently—not necessarily better, but maybe more resolved. In this case I turned to my first beaded design, Undulating Waves, and thought about how I could change the stitch to be reversible. Then (because who wants to be boring?), I threaded the beads to create color shifts in each wave. The pattern also includes extensive video tutorials to help you with the stitch!
