This pattern features an easily memorized lace stitch that creates an attractive scalloped edge, which works particularly well with lightly variegated yarns. There is lace patterning on every row, but the purl rows only have basic yarn over and purl 2 together, no frustrating purl 3 through the back loop.
Pattern includes full directions for both the scarf (9.5" wide) and the stole (20" wide"). Either one can be worked to whatever length you prefer.
This begins with the bottom border, stitches are then picked up for the body of the shawl, and the top border is knit on as you go, for a seamless scarf with matching borders.
Pattern includes charts and line by line directions.
This pattern is intended to be opened using Acrobat Reader, version 6 or higher.

I'm a third generation knitter, but only really picked it up in the last 5 years or so. I've been designing for almost 2 years now, and I love it.
