Sweetheart Lace Scarf
Does the pattern represent Cupid's arrow? Or the lover's heart? It depends on where you look! This stockinette-based lace scarf finishes with a flurry of ruffles knitted onto the narrow ends. The crisp merino wool and silk blend yarn is easy to work with and provides wonderful stitch and pattern definition.
Historical note: The pretty panel was adapted from one of the design elements in a lace edging from the late 1900's. The swatch I worked with, knitted of crochet cotton on fine steel wires, measures only 1 x 1 ¼ inches.
