Hey everyone! I knit this with probably less than half a skein of Flydyed Lacewing Sock in Evergreen on size 5s. The lace repeat was SO EASY to memorize and I love it!
I've never had a thin, light, fancy lacy scarf, but I'm glad because I think I'll still be able to wear this in springtime weather :) Let me know what you think!

That looks amazing. Beautiful colour choice, with your hair. It makes the scarf and your hair just pop. I have been wanting to knit this scarf since I started knitting about 2 yrs ago, and I just haven't found the right yarn that clicked for me, to knit it with.

It's such a pretty pattern.

It looks lovely!
I made two of these scarves at christmas, as pressies for my sister and her daughter, they loved them!

And yes, the pattern is really easy to memorise, and to follow from the previous row of knitting!

wow...that is beautiful! Redheads look fantastic in that shade of green as well as blues and periwinkle (I have 2 redheaded children--more auburn than yours though).
What was that pattern?? Is there a link for it??
I hope you have taught your friends to knit!!

Here (http://www.mtholyoke.edu/%7Ebsennott/Falling%20Water%20Pattern.pdf)'s the pattern - it is made with fingering weight yarn but the lace pattern is simple, easy to memorize, easy to find where you are (if you have to set it down and come back, it's not a problem like in many lace patterns) and fairly quick!
Thanks for the kind feedback, everyone!

After seeing how lovely yours was, I cast on last night to make my mom one for her birthday (April 24) in light purple... Wish me luck getting it done on time!
