Pattern Details

Evie has reported from San Luis Obispo, where it is currently uncharacteristically cold - people are stopping her on the streets and in libraries to comment on this scarf! I would call it a quick knit due to the US11 needles, but it's a 15 row lace stitch pattern, so you'll need to concentrate - and also, perhaps, use a lifeline (it really did save MY knitting life). This is a "single skein" pattern, but if you’d like a longer scarf, you’ll need more yardage than I used. That's noted in the pattern, too. Evie lives in San Luis Obispo, where it never really gets that cold, but she likes scarves and appreciates a fine fiber. With 150 yards, my scarf blocked is about 4 feet long - enough to keep the beach breeze away without bunching up or looking out of season under a light jacket. For cold weather scarves, if you’re gonna use fat needles like I did, grab another skein! I wanted to make her something that showed off a bit of technique and kept me interested long enough to get a scarf done - hence, larger needles, a lace stitch (“Dutch Lace”) I obtained from a vintage Mon Tricot knitting dictionary, a simple garter stitch border and a single skein of yarn (I used one of my favorites here!). Charts make me cross-eyed so there isn’t one here, but if you’re a charter and feel so inclined to add to this pattern, let me know! I did this on chunky needles for the speed - obviously you can really use whatever size needle and yarn you want, making appropriate yarn choices in weight and amount - and I’ll tell ya right now I most certainly did not knit a gauge swatch first.
