Can it be August already?! While I sit inside writing blog posts, articles, and ebooks, days seem to slip away. First we were all looking forward to the start of summer, now the echo of school days is getting caught in our ears.
Lace & Eyelets are a stunner!
Here’s -s-s-s-s-s-s another scarf pattern! I just LOVE doing these up! Not only do I now have another beautiful scarf for when I’m out and about, but I can put it in my Etsy collection or save it for a Christmas craft fair!
I found this scarf pattern on KnittingOnTheNet, which is a great knitting site, where you can download numerous patterns and stitch guides.
This scarf is called Seafoam Lace & Eyelets Scarf. Eyelets are one of my favorite knitting stitches and there are also dropped stitches in this pattern. Sounds complicated, but it’s easy as can be! Twelve rows that get repeated for the pattern, and they are simple to knit!
This lace & eyelets scarf reminds me of the ocean’s waves. In fact, I love the sound of the ocean, and I’ll bet, you do too! You can have that sound in your home; listen to the soft crashing of the waves, hear the gentle ebb and flow of soothing ocean waves that will take the stress away and help you to relax. You can find Midnight Surf right here.
So, back to our scarf pattern. I used Caron’s Simply Soft Lite yarn, in Hawaiian Sky. WHAT a beautiful color this is! Deep teal, with just a hint of blue, it’s perfect for this scarf. Use a larger knitting needle for the dropped stitches to really pop! Size 10 or 11 is ideal.
The pattern is as follows:
Slip sts WYIF. (with yarn in front)
Drop yo’s off needle on the row following Rows 4 and 12. Do NOT drop stitches off on Row 9 as these are your eyelet stitches. Knit them all. Pull down gently on the dropped yo’s a few rows after completion to even out the stitches.
As with all lace knitting, take your time!
CO 30 sts.
Rows 1, 2 and 3: Sl 1, knit across.
Row 4: Sl 1, k7, (yo 1 time, k1, yo 2 times, k1, yo 3 times, k1, yo 2 times, k1, yo 1 time, k6) twice, k2.
Rows 5, 6 and 7: Sl 1, knit across.
Row 8: Sl 1, k1, *yo k2tog; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Rows 9, 10 and 11: Sl 1, knit across.
Row 12: Sl 1 , k2, (yo 1 time, k1, yo 2 times, k1, yo 3 times, k1, yo 2 times, k1, yo 1 time, k6) three times, ending last repeat k3 instead of k6.
Rep Rows 1 – 12 until desired length, (I made my scarf approx. 70″ – using one skein of Lite yarn), ending with Row 3 completed.
Bind off, weave in the ends.
I LOVE this pattern and plan to make more lace & eyelets scarfs.
Look how many different ways you can wear this scarf. Wrap it repeatedly around and around, or double it up and loop it once, or just wear it down, letting the “waves” just flow!
Just another way to
