Leaf and Acorn Lace Scarf
2006 Scarf Contest Gold Honors Winner
From the pattern:
Leaf and Acorn Lace Scarf is a beautiful hybrid of both Shetland and Canadian lace knitting. The body (ground) of the scarf is adapted from Marianne Kinzel’s “Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting”. It is one of the most popular ground stitch for scarves, shawls, bedspreads and curtains in Shetland lace knitting. The scarf is edged on one side with a very wide leaf and acorn lace motif, which is from “Home Work, a Choice Collection of Useful Designs for Crochet and Knitting Needle.” p313-p314. “Home Work” was collected, corrected and arranged by A.M. Published in Toronto, by Rose Publishing Co. in 1891.
Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.
Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience.
Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
