The Miller Maiden's Scarf was inspired by the song "Mit dem gruenen Lautenband" (With the green lute-ribbon) from the song cycle "Die Schoene Muellerin" by Franz Schubert. The scarf is knitted in two parts from the bottom up and grafted at the center. Afterwards, stitches are picked up from the provisional cast on for the crochet chain edging. The pattern assumes that you know how to cast on provisionally, read charts, knit nupps, and graft (Kitchener stitch). Because of the very short lace repeat (2 rows), the scarf can be easily lengthened or shortened. The original scarf was knitted in handspun Teeswater/baby alpaca/bamboo/faux angora/sparkle. I estimated my yardage at between 550-600 yards and my testers used 425 yards and 535 yards respectively.
