Lacy Maizy Wrap

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H74

Crisp outlines of cable stitches overlay a lace background. This wrap is named after the semblance of ears of corn in the stitch design as well as the corn fiber yarn in which it is was knitted in the sample model shown here.

Lacy Maizy Wrap

The cables are carried out to each edge of the wrap, preserving the overall flow of the curving lines.

Normally I would not do fringe on a scarf, but this one called for it – I sort of imagined that the long oval shapes that frame the lace eyelets are like ears of corn, and the fringe is like the corn silk of the tassel.

Finished size: 12" by 70" including fringe
Yarn: 600 yards fingering weight yarn
Gauge: 15 stitches = 4 inches over blocked cable lace stitch pattern
Suggested needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm
Other notions:
cable needle (optional)
tapestry needle for finishing ends
crochet hook for latching fringe onto the ends of the wrap
sharp scissors or rotary blade cutter for trimming ends of fringe
blocking board and rust proof blocking wires/pins
Stitch instructions: charted and written
Skill level: advanced beginner
Special techniques used and described:
lace patterning on every row
cabling without a cable needle
attaching fringe
