I currently reside near Denver, Colorado, because when you live in a place where it sometimes snows in May nobody questions your obsession with knitting. I was born in Germany, grew up in Texas, went to college in three different states and two different continents, and I'm currently working on an ebook about Icelandic knitting. When I'm not assisting other designers with pattern formatting, writing, editing, and stitch charts, I design, tweet, occasionally blog, and Rav under the name JelliDonut. I consider the iPad and coffee to be critical knitting accessories, play a lousy game of tennis, and bake a mean loaf of bread. Yes, all at the same time.View all patterns by designer (4) »
I love crescent-shaped scarves. They're so versatile and easy to wear. I spend most of the winter with one wrapped and tied around my neck, and even carry them in the summer, ready for over-airconditioned rooms. This scarf is named after Dice Bay, located on Lake Clark, where you'll find Port Alsworth, Alaska, population 159, give or take a few. A scarf like Dice Bay would be a good idea in Port Alsworth, or anywhere else for that matter--it's pretty AND practical.
This scarf is worked from tip to tip: increasing, working even, then decreasing, working the edging as you go. It is an intermediate-level pattern, suitable for brave advanced beginners.
