2 balls Drops Delight or other fingering weight yarn of your choice
4mm straight needles
tapestry needle to sew in ends
I bought 2 different coloured balls of Drops Delight from The Yarn Cake in Glasgow's West End. Other stockists can be found via the Drops website. I used half of one ball (containing the red/green/blue mix), switched to use virtually all of the second ball (blue/green mix) and then, just before the end of the second ball at an appropriate point to blend the colours, I switched back to the other half of the first ball.

Due to the nature of the lace pattern, the scarf is likely to need blocking to prevent it curling in at the edges.
