This was the second 2012 Christmas present, code name “Owl.”   I’m completely in love with this scarf.  If it was any color that I wear I don’t know if I could have given it away.  It’s absolutely gorgeous and completely my style.  I’m debating on if I should make myself one or not.

This is a great beginner’s lace project. Anyone who wants to start knitting lace work I would highly recommend this scarf.  The only confusing part, for an American reader, was that there were multiple terms for yarn overs depending on if the previous stitch was a knit or purl.  I ignored all that and just though of them all as yarn overs to make it easier.  It was quick and easy to block as well so it’s good all around.  I also recommend safety lines even for an experienced lace knitter on this one.  With so many yarn overs it’s a bit challenging to try to tink or rip back mistakes!

I used the same yarn as the Helix Scarf and I still have more left over! This is one big hank of lace yarn.  I still have enough that I could make another Helix Scarf if I wanted!  I’m not sure what to do with it.  I’ll have to remember if I ever buy madelinetosh again that I’d better have two good sized projects planned for it.

The scarf was for my sister Cindy, code name “Cobra,” who I told I would never make a scarf for.  This was back when I first started knitting and all I could think of was hours and hours of boring garter stitch scarf.  I didn’t think I would make it through a whole scarf and I probably still wouldn’t today.  Lace is another matter entirely!  She wore the scarf for three days straight so I’m pretty sure she likes it!

Comments

  1. She actually wore it more than 3 days but who is counting.

  2. Gorgeous. I am not usually a fan of pink, but this scarf looks so delicate and beautiful that the pink just seems to add to the softness. Great job.
