Pattern Description:

This lovely scarf is dedicated to my friend Marie, who works as a Registered Nurse in a nursing home. She is faithful and very devoted to her patients as well as the people she works with! It is also named amethyst, because we share a birthday in February, though we have one year difference, and amethyst is our birthstone!

The lacy scarf features a fancy central pattern bordered by a fun to knit lace stitch, and with the texture of twisted stitches incorporated into the central lace. The scarf is worked from the bottom up in halves and begins with a doubled border pattern. It is then joined in the center with the Kitchener stitch for a balanced look. There are colored charts and written directions to work this scarf which is done in fingering weight yarn.

This scarf is the first to be designed for a collection of scarves which will be made into an e-book, eventually. All the patterns will continue to be sold separately as well.
