The Sweet Tea Scarf Collection will include patterns inspired by all the things I love about living in the South ~ grand front porches, lush trees and plants, summer rainstorms, misty spring mornings in the Smoky Mountains, rolling hills of fall color and sippin' sweet tea year-round. The scarves in this collection can be worn indoors or out and are equally at home with a t-shirt and jeans as a skirt or dress. They can be made using light wool sock yarn or try using fingering weight cotton. So gather your yarn and needles, a tall glass of sweet tea and settle into a comfy rocker on the porch...happy knitting! The Smoky Mountain Morning Mist Scarf was inspired by the mornings in the Tennessee valleys when a soft blanket of mist filters the stark leafless trees. The tops of the mountains are still visible above the trees and mist. There are no charts to read and the lace patterns are easy enough for a beginning knitter to work. The pattern instructions are color-coded for easy reading! Once pattern is downloaded no refunds will be given. This pattern is copyright protected.

Sock weight yarn can vary quite a bit in thickness. If you find some yarn you really want to use, just begin knitting the scarf, using the needles suggested on the yarn label, to check your gauge and to see if you like the yarn.
