After ages of hunting for a suitable pattern for a scarf, I've stumbled upon this lovely little number: http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/lace/bamboo.htm.
Since I'm using (gorgeous 100% merino wool) lace weight yarn on size 10 needles, I'm assuming that the pattern is going to be bigger than roughly the three inches wide of the sample shown.
My question is this: Since I want to add delicate seed beads for a daintier look, where would I add them? At first I thought on the yarnovers in the middle, because that would be a dewey effect...but then I realized that a 10-foot scarf with beads all in the middle would sag.
Next I thought maybe the outermost tips of the pattern--so on the row 10s.
Any thoughts? I've never done beading or lacework before, but this is a gift for a friend's mom who's going through chemo for uterine cancer, and I want it to be soft and beautiful and delicate. Thanks!
