Snowy Snowy Night

Lacy Scarf Pattern

Knit this delicate, lacy scarf that brings a cold winter night to mind.

 

The motifs include a Christmas tree edging, snowflakes falling, and, on each end, a diamond-shaped window framing a burning candle. When the pattern is knitted with fine mohair/silk laceweight yarn, the halo from the mohair fiber lends a soft coziness to this elegant accessory. But you can use any laceweight or fingering yarn and the effect is stunning.

 

This is a great pattern for learning: 
* how to combine lace and cable stitches

* stretchy cast ons and bind offs

* to block lace knitting

 

The resulting scarf is approximately 60 inches long, depending on your gauge, but the pattern includes directions for making it longer or shorter.

 

 

Difficulty: Advanced—some experience with lace knitting is highly recommended.

 

Yarn: 50 grams of mohair/silk lace weight yarn OR 125 grams of fingering yarn

I have used mohair/silk yarn (like Elann’s Silken Kydd) and a light Suri alpaca yarn and both have resulted in an exquisite scarf that draws lots of comments from visitors to my Farmers Market stall.
