"Stochastic" [stuh-kas-tik] is nerdy statistics lingo for random. Knitting is normally very orderly and predictable - quite un-stochastic. But on a recent backpacking trip, it occurred to me to design a pattern that could emulate the chaotic beauty of nature. Trees in a forest, ripples on a lake, snowflakes ... And the way to do that is not so much by designing a pattern as by not designing a pattern. So, for this project, chance will guide your scarf gradually from plain stockinette stitch to a field of flowers. Rolling a die to determine your pattern, every single person's creation will be unique! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Simple Lace GAUGE 6 stitches and 8 rows = 1 inch in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 6" wide, 54" long after blocking. SUGGESTED YARN 230 yards of Lace weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Schulana Kid Seta

Supplies Needed

  • Tapestry needle
