Lace Scarf

This is a simple, quick to knit scarf where a very basic and easy to memorise ace repeat is teamed with a luxury yarn to provide a quick and simple to knit lace accessory with a real touch of indulgence due to the cashmere blend of Skein Queen’s Blush hand dyed yarn. Each skein feels like a cuddle and a cloud.

This is the fifth and final pattern of a little collection I have written due for release in the summer, for a special project I have been taking part in. Each of the five patterns aims to introduce a new skill or technique to a relatively new knitter, whilst also remaining a pleasurable knit for more seasoned needle twiddlers. Simple patterns with interest.

The other patterns in the collection are the mittens, hat, and hot water bottle cosy from the last few days, and a pair of socks.

The mittens are knit flat using only knit and purl stitches and require only knowledge of the two basic stitches plus casting on and binding off. The hat introduces very basic colourwork in the form of stripes, plus knitting in the round and picking up stitches. The hot water bottle incorporates very simple cabling whilst the scarf introduces lace. The socks end the collection with small diameter knitting and simple short rows, following on from my Short Row heels and toes tutorial and developing this into a full multi-sized pattern.

I feel I have been able to think of little other than this project over the last few weeks, so I am happy to be able to sign it off for a while. I’m looking forward to some slightly more leisurely knitting in my spare time for a while, but I will post with a few more details about what I have been up to in the future. Specifically, around June 1st.
