Lace Knitted scarf

To challenge myself a little I started lace knitting in this scarf for a friend.

The pattern is super simple and easy to memorize.It is a free pattern and has a chart with it which turns out is far easier to follow for lace knitting. You can find free pattern for this scarf here. I just didn’t put in the nupp stitches.

It took me a little over 3 months to make this super long scarf. But I am so happy with the end product. It is completely worth the time. And the yarn is gorgeous.

I used Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace yarn for this and changed colors at the end of each skein.

Hope you are having a super crafty weekend..

Lace Knitted Scarf

I am in love with Lace knitting right now and this has been an ongoing project for quite a while.

This is a free pattern by PurlSoho and it is called the wedding shawl. It is super nice. I like that it was challenging as a beginner  to lace knitting initially but after a few repeats I could memorize it.

Alpaca with a Twist Socrates fingering weight yarn

Size 2 circular knitting needles.

This needed a nice blocking session to show off all the lace.

Enjoy and have a great weekend.

Lace knitted scarf

This is my first lace knitting project ever. I loved knitting an intricate pattern. It is amazing to see the difference blocking makes on lacy patterns.

This pattern is available on ravelry.  I modified the pattern a little bit and knitted (even if it said purl) through on the right side and purled through the wrong side. It made my life easier so I could knit while watching television. 😉
