Lace can sometimes look too formal for everyday, but not this scarf. By adding in a large "Broomstick" sized needle, the project knits up quick and is so light and airy, it's the perfect accessory for cool spring outings. The best part is the lace is created without a complex chart and there isn't a yarn-over to be found.
Tips -The scarf will easily stretch in both directions so it's best to keep an eye on your yarn and finish the project when it's close to running out rather than rely upon a set measurement.
You can sell this scarf as a finished object. See http://karlierobinson.com/2012/04/begone-personal-use-only-patterns.html for details

I remind my geeky friends that knitting is the way I code. While I don?t program computers, I do program yarn into physical objects. So when their eyes glaze over as I follow a chart or written pattern, I remind them it?s the same as understanding source code on their favorite Open Source programs.
