Carmencita is a cozy knit scarf with a diamonds-in-diamonds lace pattern and distinctive zigzag edges. It’s certain to keep you or a fortunate recipient warm even in the coldest weather. It works up very quickly and requires less than 300 yards of bulky yarn. The lace pattern is provided in both charted and written form.

The scarf shown used less than 1 skein of Schaefer Yarns Esperanza in colorway “Clara Barton.” Exact gauge is unimportant; the scarf can be worked in any weight yarn with the appropriate size needles.
