Pattern Details

What could be more versatile outerwear for late-summer evenings than a wide lace scarf or stole? This pretty rectangle is strung with leaf motifs that are highlighted all around in yarnovers, like moonlight peeking between garden vines. The piece is worked in two parts from hem to center back, then grafted together to finish (it may be also be worked in one piece for a somewhat asymmetrical result). With incorporated side edgings and an easily-learned motif, this project makes a great traveling companion for that end of summer trip. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in shawl size. Finished Size: 13.5(21) inches wide and 60(76) inches long (stretched and blocked) Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch (unblocked; fabric will be relaxed)

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at http://www.knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/index.php Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. http://www.knitspot.com/clubs/index.html Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it. http://knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/yarn-c-21.html
