When Karen brought this scarf to our design team, 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 lace-weight scarf.
We offer this pattern in a second size that has the same wingspan; a slightly longer back depth adds more fullness. 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!
