I started this knitting project last year sometime. Who can even recall at this point! I came across the scarf hanging in the Looped Yarn Works shop. (My favorite LYS!) One of the owners, Janie (a wonderful lady!), knitted this up previously and recommended it as a project.
I’m always skeptical of lace, but this pattern was pretty simple so I figured I’d give it a whirl.
If you’re on Ravelry, you can find it here.
I chose Blue Heron Rayon Metallic yarn for this scarf because I wanted something that lays softly and can be worn throughout the year. No wool please!
I decided to make the scarf wider AND longer than the pattern, so I needed to buy two skeins of this luxurious yarn. 80+ bucks for a scarf? Okay! I mean, it’s not my normal, but as a splurge, why not. Since I spent so much on the yarn, I didn’t want to only use half of the second skein. So I just kept knitting and knitting and knitting.
I think it’s the longest scarf ever?
Closeup of pattern:
Being that it is so long, it gives me lots of versatility when I’m wearing it. Mostly I wear it wrapped twice. And then knotted sometimes. Truth be told, I can wear this thing wrapped around my neck at least 4 times!
I decided to add fringe to mine and just love how luxe and pretty it is.
