When Karen brought in this scarf, we all agreed the little beads looked like raindrops, reminding us of the A.A. Milne poem, *Waiting at the Window*, that describes watching raindrops race down a windowpane. Once the scarf is on, the beads add a comforting bit of weight to the wonderfully soft drape of this light scarf.
We offer this pattern in a second size that has the same wingspan; a slightly longer back depth adds more fullness. We knit this version in a fingering-weight yarn, but either scarf can be done in a lace- or fingering-weight yarn. Once blocked, each scarf is just the right size to wear multiple ways, with long ties to knot, drape, or to pin. Both sizes have 120 sparkling raindrops!
Smaller scarf: 1 skein Rowan Fine Lace; Or approx. 437 yds/400m of an equivalent lace-weight yarn.
Larger scarf: 3 skeins Isager Alpaca Merino 2; Or approx. 775 yds/708m of an equivalent fingering-weight yarn.
Note: Both lace- and fingering-weight yarns are knit to the same gauge.
