This luxurious little scarf requires just a single skein of laceweight yarn. The sample is worked in qiviut, yarn spun from muskox fibre, which is incredibly light yet delivers exceptional warmth and softness. A laceweight or light fingering yarn with mild halo is recommended for this project.

The lace pattern is provided in both written directions and chart form. The pattern is easy to memorize and allows for relaxing knitting while enjoying a special yarn. Blocking is required to fully reveal the lacy pattern.

Size after blocking is approximately 5” wide and 48” long. Length can be easily adjusted as permitted by available yarn.

Skills/Techniques Required:

  • ​Working with laceweight or light fingering yarn
  • Basic lace knitting using yarn overs and decreases
  • Blocking of knitted lace
