A beautiful and simple lace pattern gives a simple concept a new spin.
I hope you like this new one.
A beautiful and simple lace pattern gives a simple concept a new spin.
It's knitted and sewn up together, to make it a cowl.
But it's more than a cowl, since this baby can go over your head, to cover your ears when the cold wind really blows hard.
This is knit with a beautifully soft angora & merino blend. Amazing. It feels so yummy to knit with. This baby is actually for a swap that I'm in, with the Park Slope Knitting Circle. It's so cute, I don't want to give it up! But alas, I must. I'll make more. I have plenty of yarn here at home.

Here's a pattern for you, just because I'm cool like that.

  • Step 1

    Cast on about 27 or so sts.

    Lace Pattern:

    Row 1: Knit all sts
    Row 2: Knit all sts
    Row 3: Purl all sts
    Row 4: Knit all sts
    Row 5: *K1, (k2tog) twice, (yo, k1) three times, yo, (k2tog tbl) twice. Repeat from *
    Row 6: Purl all sts.

    Repeat rows 5 & 6 three times, then start over from row 1.

    That's it!
    Just keep going, until piece measures about 42 or so inches.
    Sew up the two ends, and there you go! It's done!
    Oh! About the details:
    I used a beautiful yarn called "Sublime" Angora Merino wool, and it took up about 1 and a half skeins of it.
    I used size 7.00 mm circular needles, but you can use straights.
    Also, gauge isn't important, since this is a lovely breathable lace.

i'm having a little bit of trouble--when i start the 5th row, it's good until i repeat from '*' where i then run out of stitches to continue it, you get what i mean?

Hi there! Well, you should try using bigger needles. It could be that the yarn you are using is thinner than the one I used. Just cast on what you need for the thickness of the scarf.
Hiya - Just wanted you to know that I signed up so that I could comment on this project!

I've started it - but I just now noticed many rows later that I used needles that were, like, 8 times smaller than yours. I'm pretty sure it won't be able to go over my head. :c

It's coming out really pretty, though, so I don't want to unravel it! What should I do?
