The classic look of a scarf with contrasting ends inspired the design of Laura’s Scarf v.2. The geometric ends create a bold statement using garter stitch and the same lace design as the body of the scarf.
Laura’s Scarf is knit in DK weight yarn using size 8 (5.0mm) needles so it knits up rapidly. The garter stitch is used with lace to add pizzazz to a classic scarf. Use a luxury yarn for an extravagant feel. The texture of this scarf is fantastic!
I received a request for a scarf for a “potential girlfriend” in lavender and “oh–yeah, by Christmas!” I wanted a fast knit that was attractive and fun to knit.
As Laura’s Scarf developed, a range of design elements emerged. Several scarf patterns were developed with the different design elements. Charts from one scarf pattern may be substituted into another pattern for a customized scarf.
Stitches/techniques used: knit, purl, k2tog, SSK, yarn over, cast on, bind off.
