From the pattern: "The Winding Woods scarflette features a central cable flanked by a pinecone lace pattern, giving the impression of a walk through the winter woods. And, knit in DK weight yarn with a generous 9 in (23 cm) width, it is certainly warm enough for winter walks. The keyhole opening makes it easy to keep the scarf securely in place no matter how windy it gets, and the length is perfect for keeping the upper chest warm without adding bulk under winter coats." This pattern knits up quickly, and is available in 2 sizes to accomodate a wide range of heights; even greater customization can easily be achieved by adding or subtracting pattern repeats, if desired. Both written and charted instructions are included. Please note: yardage requirements will vary depending upon which size is knit, and whether additional repeats are added. Knit exactly as presented in the pattern, the Petite size requires approximately 150 yds/137 m, and the Tall size requires approximately 190 yds/174 m.

I'm a knitter, spinner, indie knitwear designer and indie yarn dyer - my designs focus on accessories, especially shawls and scarves of all shapes and sizes. I love exploring the possibilities of different fibers, yarn weights, and dyeing techniques, and find inspiration in both nature and everday life.
