From Piecework Magazine, July/August 2005:
The inspiration for this scarf is from some of the triangular knitted lace shawls I have seen in Haapsalu, Estonia. The pattern is adapted from Leili Reimann’s book Pitsilised Koekirjad Lace Knittingstonia: Monokkel, 1995). This pattern is different from many Estonian patterns because the center of each diamond is worked in garter stitch (stitches are purled on both the right and wrong sides) rather than the usual stockinette stitch. I made a small neck scarf, but it easily may be enlarged by using larger needles or working more pattern repeats (more than one skein of yarn may be needed for a larger version).

- US 1 (2.5 mm) circular needle, 24”/61 cm
