View Full Version : WIP- Old Shale Scarf

The pattern is free here: http://www.mielkesfarm.com/oldshale.htm

This is to go with the purse for my 11 year old fashionista niece. I hope she likes pink!! So far this pattern has been a good intro into "lace". It's not too difficult as long as you are paying attention.

What a cute set, and perfect for that age (I have one that age as well). She will no doubt squeal when she sees this.

I wonder how this would look in that ball of Divine that I need to whip up for Christmas? This one is lovely - and inspiring!!!

Wow! Your stitching looks like machine made. Beautiful work!

Thanks gals! Yarn is Galway 100% wool, worsted weight. Size 9 needle

Will I need to block this? If so...I better start searching for blocking threads. :) I'm so fascinated that a combo of knitting, purling and yo's can make such a cool looking scarf.

Many, many thanks to Amy for all the great videos. I've even tried continental knitting (can't quite get it right yet)!

Oh..and the avatar is my sweet dog, Sadie. :D
