Colorful Splendor Lace Scarf

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H41

Show off your favorite bright palette of colors in this simple yet effective lace scarf pattern. Dramatic colors in hand painted yarn enhance the bias movement of the stockinette-based lace in the main stitch area of the scarf.

The scarf is knitted from end to end in one piece (i.e. no seams to sew or graft, and no stitches to pick up). Dainty look-alike scalloped edgings begin and end the scarf. The outer border is knit as-you-go in a textured garter-based lace that sets off the main area with a visual mixing of colors.

Rae I. writes —
"... The pattern is rhythmic and enjoyable to knit; almost meditative."

Colorful Splendor Lace Scarf in Schaefer Yarns Andrea silk

Number of projects for this pattern that are posted on Ravelry

Bettie Sue writes —
"What a wonderful choice for my first lace project! The combination of written and graph directions was a great way to learn."
Rae I. writes —
"I just wanted to drop you a little note to tell you what a wonderful pattern this is! I just ifnished kniting this lovely piece in a hand-painted fingering weight yarn, and it is lovely lovely lovely. It is on the blocking boards right now, and I am nearly mesmerized by its beauty. And I was able to complete it in less than a week.

The way you write patterns is just wonderful. So very clear. The bind off for this scarf didn't make much sense to me as I was reading it, but I just carefully followed the directions and it is perfect. When I finished the bindd off, before I clipped the yarn, I spread it out on my knee to examine it, then said, 'NOW I get it!'

Using fingering weight yarn it came out a bit wide for a scar at 10.5 inches, but that's okay. If I make it again with this weight yarn, I'll decrease the width by one repeat. Actually, this was a bit of a trial piece for me, and next time I'll knit it up with the god stuff!

Thank you so much for such a beautiful, clearly written pattern. Such success encourages me to proceed with another project with increased confidence."

Allow 325 yards of laceweight yarn for blocked measurements of 8" x 58" scarf, or desired length and width with yardage adjustment. Average of 7 stitches/inch over combination of border and main patterns, size US 5 / 3.75 mm needles suggested. Charted and written stitch instructions.

Pictured model was knitted with Schaefer Yarns Andrea 100% silk in a palette of gold/rust/brown/fuchsia to celebrate an autumn splendor of color. Schaefer doesn't have an exact color name for this yarn, but it is a somewhat brighter and more intense version of the color they call Louisa May Alcott.
