The Go! Scarf, the third and final design is based upon the road signs that show tight bends. While the first two designs were for runners to wear while training, this scarf is for supporters to keep themselves warm if they have been dragged outside to watch. The lace chevrons mean that in an emergency, the wearer can direct disoriented racers back in the right direction.
This pattern was originally sold to raise funds for Refuge - a UK charity for women and children suffering domestic violence. Since the introduction of new EU VAT rules, we felt it was simplest to make this pattern available for free, and to ask you to make a donation to Refuge or a local charity helping the victims of domestic violence.

It is difficult to be precise when giving tension information for a lace pattern, since it depends so much on how the lace was blocked. It is recommended that you try to match tension as closely as possible, since it will affect both finished size and yarn quantity used.
