Lake Effect Lace Scarf Pattern Ready for Download

The Lake Effect Scarf worked up beautifully in Rowan Kidsilk Haze.  One 25 gram skein produced a 54" (137cm) long scarf that is about 4.5" (11cm) wide.   I did not block this scarf as I really loved the gently ruffled edges that resulted from the stitch pattern.  But I think you could carefully block and still keep the edge effect. 


This is a super easy technique - even if the directions read a bit wonky (cause it's brioche after all).   But seriously, once you get the technique of creating the wraps down, it is a very straightforward stitch pattern.  See the video of the cascade stitch if you need a visual.  In the Lake Effect stitch pattern, the "cascades" line up over each other; in the cascade stitch pattern the "cascades" are staggered, and occur over 4 rows instead of 6.

I'm anxious to try this in other yarns as well. 


You'll find the link to the pattern over on the right hand side of the blog - under the Complimentary Pattern heading.

If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to leave a comment or send me an email.

Update  - this post shows how to add beads to this design.

    1. Oh, I'm sorry if the pattern is not downloading for you; I know how frustrating that can be. The pdf of this pattern is hosted on Google Docs. You should see the pdf when you click on the link. I haven't heard of any other issues downloading. email me at www.verdigris.knits@gmail.com and I'll be happy to work with you or send you the pdf directly.
