PATTERN DETAILS

This scarf was designed for my mother in honor of her 65th birthday. She helped in choosing the yarn and stitch patterns. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of this scarf pattern will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. This means that the entire purchase price, minus transaction fees, will go towards cancer research and improving the quality of life for cancer patients. The scarf features a scalloped lace pattern at the ends, and uses a garter-stitch diamond lace pattern through the body of the scarf to show off the beautiful tonal variations of this variegated yarn. The pattern includes both charted and written directions for the lace patterns. Please note that the yarn used to knit the sample has a lot of drape (think 100% silk or rayon), so if you use a yarn that has more bounce, such as wool or acrylic, you may need more yardage to make a full-length scarf. Amma's Story When my son was learning to talk, "Grandma" was too much of a mouthful for him, so he dubbed my mother "Amma," a title she was more than happy to carry. She was delighted to be a grandmother, and even more delighted that she was in such good health that she could enjoy the company of an active toddler. Two years prior, I told my mother that I was expecting her first grandchild. Not long after this, she told me that she had breast cancer. She was treated and fully recovered. Five years later, I told her that I was expecting another child. Only weeks later, she told me that she had again been diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, she is once again cancer-free with a good long-term prognosis. Happy Birthday, Mom, and many more to come!

Sarcastic Stitches
I learned to knit in 2001 while recovering from an illness and quickly began modifying patterns and then designing my own garments. My designs have since been seen in Knitty, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, and on Boing-Boing. I started designing cross-stitch patterns when I couldn't find patterns that were the right mix of traditional and sarcastic.
