Undulating Waves Scarf was Laura Nelkin's first foray into
designing with beads. It is based on a lace pattern that has lace stitches on
both the knit and purl sides of the fabric. This allows the beads to float on
the yarn-overs. Although I have marked this pattern as advanced, you will find
that, with practice and perseverance, the pattern becomes quite easy!
