Pattern Description:

The Front Porch Fern Lace Scarf was inspired by the relaxed lifestyle of the South. Sitting on a grand front porch, dotted with lacy ferns that gently move in the breeze under a large ceiling fan.

The garter stitch Fern Leaf Edging is balanced by the Delicate Leaf Lace pattern on the opposite edge and finished with a decorative bind-off. The two patterns are worked in different directions giving visual interest. The scarf is completely reversible so it looks beautiful no matter how you decide to wear it!

The Sweet Tea Scarf Collection is a wonderful gathering of patterns inspired by all the things I love about living in the South. Including grand front porches, lush trees and plants, summer rainstorms, misty spring mornings in the Smoky Mountains, rolling hills of fall color and sippin' sweet tea year-round. The scarves in this collection can be worn indoors or out and are equally at home with a t-shirt and jeans as a skirt or dress. They can be made using light wool sock yarn or try using fingering weight cotton. The Front Porch Fern Leaf Lace Scarf is the first scarf of the collection, more to come soon!!
