This is a pattern for a lace scarf that uses just one 50g skein of fingering weight yarn. There are so many lovely colorways now that I wanted to design a scarf to show off the colors and also have an interesting texture. It is a balance with lace and colors to find a combination that shows colors but does not distract from the lace. I also wanted this scarf to look good on both sides.

This will be an easy pattern for experienced lace knitters but will require attention to the pattern for beginners. For that reason I have labeled it an intermediate pattern.

Gauge is not important except that it be a fairly loose gauge that will result in a fabric that drapes nicely.

The tilting blocks lace pattern is a great example of how knitting lace can result in a tilted pattern even though it is knitted straight across in rows.

Happy knitting….
