Laceweight/fingering/sock weight yarn
What was your inspiration?
I love Estonian knitting stitch patterns and used the Estonian style when writing the pattern. One edging is a swirl pattern representing the mist that rolls into the Tennessee valleys in the morning. The tree branch pattern in the scarf body represents the leafless trees that are barely visible through the mist. The lacy peaks on the opposite edge represent the mountain tops visible above the trees.
What are you most proud of?
The two edging and central lace patterns are simple and do not require a chart! I'm not super fond of charts, although if I love a pattern enough I will use one. I like being able to follow a simple repeat that can be put down and picked up again without taking 20 minutes to figure out where I am in the pattern. I color coded the pattern to make it even simpler to follow!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you have never used laceweight yarn, this is a great pattern to give it a try! You can also use sock yarn for a less lacy appearance and for a scarf that is a bit thicker. The pattern can easily be made wider so it can be worn as a shawl.
