Purple Lace Wrap
This beautiful lace wrap is very time consuming, but well worth the effort. It is made with a delicate lace yarn and a rather simple pattern.
CO 80 sts, longtail method
*yarn overs (yo) are done purlwise in this pattern.
Row 1: k across
Row 2: p2, *yo, p4 tog; rep from -* to end across to last 2 sts, p2
Row 3: k2, *k1, (k1, p1, k1) in yo from previous row; rep from * to end to last 2 sts, k2
Rep rows 1-3 until you have knit the desired length. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
I blocked this, just by wetting it and pinning it out. It really helped open up the lace and helped it sit flat.
My finished scarf is 15"x102".
This is definitely a time consuming scarf, with the delicate lace yarn. I actually spent about 10 months working on this scarf on and off, maybe an hour or three one week and then not working on it for a few weeks and then going back. I worked on it between projects, when I was getting ready to start something new. Since it was so time consuming and fidgety with the lace yarn, I would recommend not trying to knit it all at once, with nothing to break it up. The beauty of the finished lacey project will certainly make up for the effort though!
