Muriel's Diamond Lace Scarf
This lovely diamond patterned lace scarf is dedicated to my dear friend Muriel, who is a faithful and loving mom, and grandparent. She is a hardworking lady who always has a smile and friendly conversations!
The scarf features a fancy diamond lace stitch design that runs up the body of the scarf and is bordered with a delicate little lace stitch to frame the center pattern. The scarf is knitted, with fingering weight yarn, in halves beginning with the border, and then worked up to the center where it is joined with the Kitchener Stitch for a balanced look. There are colored charts as well as written directions to work this gracious scarf!
Finished Measurements after blocking are: 73” long x 7 ½” wide.
Yarn: 462 yards fingering weight. (You will need more yardage if you knit loosely, as this pattern took exactly 462 yard with only inches to spare!) Sample was knit with 2 balls of Knitpicks Palette in color—Cotton Candy; 100% Peruvian Highland Wool; 231 yards/50 gram ball
