The fluid design of the Lead or Follow Lace Scarf is a wonderful study in the behavior of lace knitting when yarn overs are placed in various positions relative to the compensating decrease. This scarf is true knitted lace; i.e. lace hole patterning is knit on every row. Well worth the beauty.

I finished this scarf last week, and loved the pattern (thanks Jackie! I have to say, that scarf is probably the thing that I'm most proud of knitting. I started it before I could figure out that lace might be "hard", and your well-written pattern made it a breeze. I have several other of your scarf patterns that I am now anxious to try!
