The Scarf

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I like the zig-zag pattern of the eyelets and the wavy edges of this scarf. They add interest, but are very simple to knit. The pattern (Lopi Lace Scarf) can be found in the book Weekend Knitting. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was short on the main color of yarn, so I extended the length of the contrasting edge. I like the way it turned out. The contrasting edge is knit on larger needles causing it to flair out a bit. I think this goes well with the wavy edges along the side. The finished length of my scarf is 54". Just right.

  3. Your scarf turned out so well! The lacy pattern looks very nice. What a thrill to see that the yarn is from Fire Ant Ranch. The owner is a friend of mine from way, way back when we lived in Austin and were members of the Knitter's and Crocheter's Guild there. I've got some of her handspun, too. You've inspired me to knit it.

  4. Lynette,
    The yarn I used is hand-spun by Suzanne Correira of Fire Ant Ranch in Elgin, TX. The blue green color is all wool. The multi-color is a wool/mohair blend.
