Pattern Description:

This is a scarf to knit away on a chilly winter afternoon, cuddled up with a good cup of coffee by your side and even better movie on your TV!

Young Afternoons Scarf is an easy, pretty lace scarf, worked with a garter stitch edging and an easy to memorize pattern, using yarn overs and slipped stitches.

I used Lida Tweed Flame Boutonne, a long discontinued 100% wool thick and thin yarn (mostly worsted weight), that resembled handspun yarn. Any worsted weight or thick and thin yarn can be used. If you'd like a thinner scarf, feel free to substitute a dk or sport weight yarn instead and knit at a slightly tighter gauge.

Approximately 150 grams were used for my sample, which measured 12" by 61" after blocking.

Scarf is written for two sizes, approximately 12" or 18" wide, after blocking.

Many thanks to my testers, FalconDance, tinkershell , honeystalks and valcrafts!

Thanks to Anne McFarland for tech editing.

Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please do not sell finished items online. If making for charity, please let me know the name of the charity & include my contact info with the item.

My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find.
