Fancy lacy scarf


Hello there! How is everyone doing? I hope you all are doing well...

I hardly believe it's been over a month since I did a blog post, just feel it's been ages! I have not been blogging, either visiting blogs or responding your comments during the time... Please accept my apologies for the silence. Life has been so messy lately, so many things have happened that kept me too busy to update my blog as well kept me away from blogland.

I would like to send a huge thank you to you all, my bloggy friends, who have still been visiting, leaving kind messages to ask if I am OK or just simply stopping by to say Hello... Just let you know how much I do appreciate that... I would also like to thank you very much to my new followers, I'm so happy you find my blog somehow interesting and keep following it. Please give me some time to visit you back and enjoy your creations... It may be a bit late, I know, but surely I will.

Well, I finished this scarf last month but have been waiting for a while to post it...


The scarf is from a very easy and popular drop stitch pattern, named "seafoam". Lace scarf is one of my favorites, mainly because of the "not so cold" weather where I live, so when I first saw this pattern in my knitting book, I told myself I must give it a go. If you have not yet tried, it's mindless knitting and really fun to make!


A closer look at the sea-foam stitches...


When I uploaded the scarf to my projects on Ravelry, I found there's another pattern available, and it's completely the same as the pattern in my book, even has the same name, "seafoam". "Seafoam scarf" on Ravelry - in case you wonder.


I used a Bernat big ball (10oz - 300gr) for the scarf. This yarn is really nice to work with, it's beautiful and softer than some other types of Bernat worsted. I so much love it. The loveliest part of this yarn is you don't have to join new yarn during the work, one ball makes it all! After this scarf I still have a half a ball left so I'm looking for a hat pattern to match with.


I have made several scarfs so far, but this is the first one I made for myself. I love it. I can imagine I'm wearing it, when my sweetie and I are enjoying a walk, on a cool autumn evening... :)


Thank you so much for stopping by - I'm so glad to see you again!

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Lots of love,
LS xx

I love that colour combination. Did you know that there is a crochet pattern that looks almost the same? I made a cardigan earlier in the year with that pattern, but the knitted version looks much softer.
Enjoy wearing it!

That's so pretty! I'm actually working on a scarf like that myself, but I'm using scraps of baby yarn so it takes forever, expecially on size 2 needles...

I love the scarf and have tried the pattern a couple of times just quickly. Do you wrap 4 or 3 for the middle of the wave? I think when I wrap 4 it is too stringy. Hope you are okay and that everything is calming down for you. Wishing you the best,
Meredith
