Lattice Scarf

Posted by on Oct 03 2006 | Crafty things

I finished this a while ago, but with college and the fact that it was a gift and needed to be received before blogging, I’m only getting around to posting it now.

It was a quick and satisfying knit this. Easy enough but not too dull, and fast too.

It used 2 balls of Debbie Bliss Merino Chunky, which was lovely to work with, although there was a knot in both balls, which was a pain. I probably could have done with another ball, but I stretched it when I washed it and it’s just about the right length then.

I used my new short brittany birch straights, size 6.5mm. I am in love with these needles. Super light, super smooth, beautiful to look at, and not too long.

The pattern:
CO 14 sts
Knit a row, then work 4 row stitch pattern as follows:

1. Slip 1, Knit 1, (Yarn Over, Knit 2 together) 5 times, Knit 2
2. Slip 1, Knit 13
3. Slip 1, Knit 2, (Yarn Over, Knit 2 together) 5 times, Knit 1
2. Slip 1, Knit 13

Super easy!

  4. I love the pattern! How do you think it would knit up in a worsted weight 50% alpaca/ 50% merino wool blend? I would cast on more stitches and use smaller needles, of course.

    Giving up chocolate and caffeine? That sounds like my worst nightmare, especially if there’s ANY work the needs to get done.

  5. I think it would work fine in a smaller weight – the alpaca would make it really soft and warm too, which’d be lovely.
