Fingers were finally put to keyboard, pattern was written, and photography happened… I have finally managed to write the pattern for Dancing with Leaves!
This is to give you an indication of width.
I quite like to wear it like this. It has become a bit of a favourite!
Instructions for a wider width are included, so that you can make it a wrap size to be just a bit snugglier for cooler weather – it will be a nice shoulder warmer too. There is enough yarn in one 200g skein of Anna Gratton’s 4 ply (fingering weight) 100% wool yarn for the wider version. The one that you see here uses only 100g (about 416m/456yd).
I am even toying with a DK version, as I crave a heavier lace wrap in a beautiful naturally coloured 100% wool (it’s called wishful winter thinking).
A version of this pattern is free with yarn purchase from Anna Gratton (if you are in the Wellington region, she’s going to be at the Martinborough Fair next weekend, 7 March), or you can buy the pattern only here.
Information about the pattern:
This is an advanced entry level lace scarf, ie., it is an easy pattern, but best attempted by someone who already knows the basics of lace (YO, K2tog, SSK). I have written in plenty of instructional hints. Both charts and written instructions are provided, to suit pattern reading preferences. Blocking is essential to achieve the correct finish!
