Jewel Lacy Scarf

 While at a yarn tasting, I decided to play with Jewel and found a stitch that worked great with the texture of the yarn.  I took the usual YO, K2Tog, followed by a knit row and added one more knit row.  This accomplished getting rid of the usual bias.  It also made the yarn almost stripe in the 3 color dip dyed shades of Jewel.
 Jewel is 100% Peruvian Highland wool available in tonal hand dyes as well as multi dip dyed colors.  There are 142 yards per skein and it is a single-plied thick thin yarn. There is enough texture to be interesting, but not so much that you loose stitch definition.
One skein will make a 6" x 38" scarf.  It is shown in color 9825 and knit on a US 10 needle.
