Baktus, oops..Karius Scarf
Here's the great pattern on Ravelry.
The lacy version is here.
A nice photo and the pattern can be found here on flickr.
Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn details here and on Ravelry here. I don't like this yarn for socks. I've tried. I think it's spun too tightly. I heard rumors that the second run of the yarn wasn't spun so tightly and would be easier to pull out of the skein. I did get frustrated with the number of times that the yarn twisted. I was able to untangle the "yarn belch" without needing to break the yarn (or anything around me at the time.) The colors are quite enjoyable as Noro usually is. I did knit a baby surprise jacket out of Kureyon Sock. The size of the BSJ is definitely for a small baby.
I like the ideas of a few nice beads on the ends, don't you? I think something natural looking and not too large. The added benefit for me is it would weight the ends a bit.
Cat can be found here. Go say "Hi." Read her blog, you'll understand.
