Pattern Description:

Close your eyes and imagine a desert landscape on a distant planet, where the solar wind gently shapes the sand.

Now imagine that landscape captured in a Seamen style lace scarf - stitches gently swaying in time with the wind. Knit in a fingering/sock weight yarn ~ "Menat Scarf" is both inspired by and named for the Menat Dune field of Venus - the 'hot' planet of love.

You'll love this project that marries an interesting yet easy lace pattern with ribbing that gently hugs your neck - all while remaining a light weight scarf.

"Menat Scarf" is shown knit in Brooks Farm Yarn Acero (60% superwash wool, 20% silk, 20% viscose; 420 yds/113g per skein). Only 284 yds were actually used for the scarf. This size skein allows for knitting the lace ends longer if desired.
