Fremont is one of the most fun and free-spirited neighborhoods in Seattle, and this design is just funky enough to fit right in there. The scarf is shaped as a shallow triangle with simple, slanted lines of garter stitch lace that meet up at the center. It is knit from end to end with picots worked as you go and shows off the beauty of multi-color yarns. It also looks great in solid colors.

Although the lace repeats over 24 rows, it is easy to work, and eyelets outline the three sides so it can be blocked with wires.

This design is fun to knit and fun to wear. It is a terrific single-skein project since the size can be customized. It can be knit in a variety of lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.

Pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
