Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Some lace knitting experience

Pattern Description:

I've lived in Thailand most of the time since late 1998 and wanted to create a design that reminds me of the many temples that are found throughout the country. This design incorporates temple roofs, unopened lotus buds, and the leaves of the sacred Bodhi tree - all elements found in Buddhist temples.

The yarn for the project is Manos Silk Fino blend (merino and silk) in the color Topaz, which is similar to the color of the robes worn by many monks. (I used most of 2 50-gram skeins knitting the scarf with 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4).

This scarf is knit in 2 pieces that are grafted by using a simple Kitchener garter graft. The leaf edging is incorporated into the main pattern and knit along with the body of the scarf.

I found this Manos yarn wonderful to work with and it provides very good stitch definition, as well as a range of tones, being a hand-dyed product.
