View Full Version : Leaf Lace scarf
09-14-2006, 04:45 PM
I finally (I say finally because it was one of the projects OTN during my experimentation of knitting several projects at once, I gladly go back to monogamous knitting!) finished the leaf lace scarf from (I think) the 2005 spring issue of VK. I knit mine using 2 balls of SWTC bamboo yarn in the parrot colorway and size 5 addis and options needles. I modified the pattern a bit using Annie Modesitt's slip st. edging, thus eliminating the rolling and I knit several leaves separtately and sewed them on the ends.

JUST BEAUTIFUL! Perfect yarn choice as Amber said! :heart:

What's really remarkable is your stitchwork; I can see the pattern more than I can the colorway of the yarn! Stunning, Becka! :heart:

Thanks so much, you guys! You sure make a girl feel good :teehee:
The slip st. edging is very easy and it works like a dream, leave it to Annie Modesitt! This is available in a free pattern, Alison's scarf (http://www.modeknit.com/blog/) on Annie's blog and I asked her if she minded if I used it in a scarf I am designing now and she said, of course, they aren't her sts! LOL, she's funny!
This requires and additional 3 sts on each side
Right side rows: k1, sl1 wyif (slip one with yarn in front), k1 one each edge
Wrong side rows: sl1 wyif, k1, sl1 wyif on each edge
