Good first lace scarf project. FYI
I was seeing so many lovely patterns for lace and was very intimidated by them. However, I found this free scarf pattern online and it has been easy and rewarding to knit!

Lace has scared me, too, Joy. Yet, I've known I'd eventually have to tackle it. That looks like a really pretty scarf, and I'm glad to hear that it's not overly challenging. I'll bookmark it for when I'm ready to take that plunge. Thanks!

Hey, Joy. What yarn are you using for yours? I noticed the pattern uses Microspun. I've never tried knitting with it.

i must jump in and say that i think microspun is WONDERFUL. slippery but still very nice and soft. i would think it would be very nice with this scarf.

and being someone who avoids anything that requires much more thought than seed stitch, i hafta say that this pattern looks pretty darn easy...even for me :rollseyes:


yeah i would figger out a way to screw it up....lol

I wanna try it with Joy's yarn, too. It looks all glittery and prettiful. I'm going to knit it up for my mom's birthday. So yeah, what is that yarn, Joy?

I am using left over Red Heart Fiesta Green something. We have extra because my 7 year old is making a scarf for herself with it also.

It is fun yarn and easy wash. I bought it at Walmart.

Thank you for the encouragement!!!!!

Happy knitting!

ps... the knitting boo boos don't show, I am glad

That's lovely! That same pattern was my first lace attempt. I made a lap afghan with Homespun, and it had about 5 pattern repeats across. It knitted up in less than a week!

Congrats on graduating to lace!!

DONE
I had to shorten the scarf by a foot because I ran out of yarn. My daughter did not want to give me any from her stash because she is working her scarf and a seven year old can be strong willed!

Short but nice in any case.
