Sea Green * Little Arrowhead Lace

I love this simple sea green ( in real life) scarf. The yarn is a gossamer Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester. I only used a little of the 1000 yard skein, not even a third, I could have knit for miles! The scarf is as light as a feather, with subtle variation in color. I am unable to post the complete pattern just yet, due to bad blogger ju-ju. I'll give you the stitch pattern how about?

Little Arrowhead Lace: (worked over 7 sts)
Row 1:(RS) K1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k1.
Rows 2 and 4:(WS) Purl.
Row 3: K2, yo, sl 2 kwise, k1, pass 2 slipped sts over,yo, k2.
Repeat Rows 1–4 for pattern.

Its fast and fun to work. Have at it!
