Classic Elite's new Firefly yarn is beautifuland has a lot of yardage per 50 gram ball. I had the idea of creating a scarf by working the entirety of 1 ball for the first half, then work a second half with the entirety of the second ball, then graft them together at the centereliminating much excess leftover yarn. The pattern is written to stop after 12 repeats because that's what worked best for the model scarf. If you feel you still have quite a bit of yarn left and could get another repeat from your ball of yarn, I encourage you to do so. Be sure to do the same thing on the other side.
I searched for a fun-to-knit lacy pattern with a simple bobblesomething that would show off the elegant texture of Firefly. I swatched a few patterns that didn't grab me and yell "YES" until I eventually found one and fell in lovestitch pattern #290 from my 1000 Knitting Patterns Book. I knit through one 12-row repeat, then began the second set of 12 rowsbut something didn't feel right. So, I took the liberty, and creative license, to add 2 more rows to the stitch pattern making it something a little more to my liking.
