This lace scarf design was inspired by the golden bees uncovered in the tomb of Childeric (king of the Franks ~457-481). I've added a few flowers at the top of each bee.
This pattern is a long curving scarf/shawl made up of wedge-shaped repeats. The length can be adjusted by changing the number of repeats. The sample scarf has 14 repeats, but 11 would make a good-sized scarf that would hang nicely around your neck.
Instructions are both written and charted.
This pattern was the subject of my 2012 Tour de France KAL.
Samples were knit from:
Brown: 500yd/457m of Malabrigo Yarn Lace (2 skeins needed)
Yellow: 575 yd/525m of Handmaiden Mini Maiden (2 skeins needed)
I'm a lifelong crafter, but settled on knitting in university when I wanted sweaters but couldn't afford to buy them. My first knitting love was lace. I'm sure I'll keep returning to lace, but there are so many other fun techniques to explore as well!
