this week’s installment in the pre-christmas pattern flurry is a pretty lace scarf in a downy soft yarn with all-winter appeal. i won’t be bashful about it—i love the way this one turned out and enjoyed every minute of knitting it. the pattern is easy as can be, with just eight rows to keep track of, but what a beautiful effect those eight little rows have in this frosty lavender/blue colorway. the piece takes surprisingly little yardage for its length; if you have a precious skein lying around that is not quite enough for most scarves, it might work with this one.
this project is is truly a no-fuss traveler; once you’ve got the pattern set up, it’s a snap to add a few rows here or there, as your day allows and easy to find your place if interrupted. and if all that weren’t enough, it’s a great twin accessory for the delicato mitts—if they were a hit with a recipient at some earlier point, this would make an excellent follow-up gift.
susan, owner and dyer of slackford studio, sent me a generous amount of this yarn, so i’ll be knitting a matching set of mitts next to go with it—thank you susan! susan offers some extremely pretty yarns of all weights in her online shop, on beautiful bases, too. go take a look while i add some more pictures . . .
