Knitted in two parts and grafted at the center, the Galswintha scarf is an elegant accessory and perfect for spring with its lilies-of-the-valley and tree of life.

The pattern assumes that you have some experience knitting lace and reading charts. It contains links to the provisional cast-on method used here and instructions for working nupps. A photo tutorial is provided for the gathered stitches used on the border.

Galswintha is the penultimate scarf in the Not Quite Samite series named for Frankish queens.
