Pattern Description:

Imagine being the "first-born" in a world that has been newly created. Imagine being able to climb to the top of a peak and see a panorama of beautiful, untouched land and sea spreading out before you as far as the eye can see. Imagine having an infinite amount of years to enjoy this new world. This is where the elves in J.R.R. Tolkien's Silmarillion lived. Ered Lmin or The Echoing Mountains was one of the natural borders of Elven lands in Middle Earth.

This lovely infinity scarf is knit in reverse stockinette. The lace pattern is reminiscent of the echoing mountains. The bold lines of the decreases give the illusion of tree trunks and branches. It is a very nice contrast to the softness of the lace. I chose to use a hand spun, hand dyed super-wash wool yarn.

This is a very light and airy lace infinity scarf. It can be worn many ways. It can be worn straight down, like a traditional scarf.

It will wrap comfortably around the neck twice and may be worn as a cowl.

Or it can be wrapped around the neck twice, and then a single layer brought up over the head, like a snood of sorts. This is a very pretty look. Very feminine.

I enjoy spinning, knitting, and quilting. I have a small spinner's flock consisting of 11 Shetland sheep, 3 Suri alpacas, 3 Huacaya alpacas, and 2 llamas who watch over them all.

Finding patterns for using with handspun yarns hasn't always been easy. Since I primarily use my own handspun yarns (there are exceptions...like gift giving) I started dabbling with designing my own quite some time ...
