Easy Lacy Scarf

Lacy Scarf

For my last Christmas gift, I am knitting this lacy scarf 🙂  I am so proud of the results that I am carrying it around in my purse to show to everybody!  The amazing thing, is how easy it is.  It looks much more complicated than it actually is.  I used the pattern from “101 Designer one-skein Wonders”  called “Marialis End-to-End Scarf” and the yarn I am using is Blue Sky Alpacas: sport weight 100% baby alpaca color 512 a beautiful burgandy.  I am using US 5 circular needles.  It is basically a “feather and fan” lace stitch with a seed stitch for the border.  You can find a similar pattern for free at Louet, but the free pattern is for a shawl that is about 3 times as wide.  I would definately suggest buying the book.  It is my favorite so far with lots of easy, quick knitting patterns (hats, scarves, socks, shawls, bags, headbands) all perfect for last minute Christmas gifts!
