Take a leisurely stroll through the woods with this fun, asymmetrical lace scarf. Trees turn into leaves, which then morph into flowers. Because the three different lace patterns use the same number of repeat stitches across, the width is easily customized (as is the length), and beads can be added for extra flair. Beads are placed in the Tree and Flower sections, leaving the middle Leaf section to be soft and cozy for the wearer’s neck.

Both written and charted instructions are provided. The samples shown were worked as fingering weight scarves; doubling the width (and yardage required) will result in a beautiful stole.

Although the samples are in fingering weight, this pattern will also work well with lace, sport/dk, or worsted yarn. Just change the width/length (and yardage) according to your preference.
