Missing abbreviation: m1l = make one left
Typo: The directions for the cast-off stitches in the leaf section tell you to transfer the stitch you just worked to the right hand needle (rhn). You are actually transferring the stitch just worked from your right hand needle to your left hand needle.
Typo: In the written directions, it says “you have used 1/2 your yarn” and instructs you to begin decreases. However, if you are following the schematic you will see that decreases begin after you have used 72.5% of your yarn. You can start decreases anywhere in the pattern, as long as you have approximately 30% of your yarn left to complete the decrease section. (if you made an extra-large increase section, you must be sure to have the same quantity of yarn remaining that you used for the increase section).
Dr. Camille Saroyan is intelligent, graceful, and uncompromisingly organized. The simple lace scarf would fit right at home in sleek and professional wardrobe.
Knit in one piece from start to finish, Saroyan is a perfect project for beginning lace knitters. This tapered scarf can be worn a variety of ways, and the construction helps to keep your neck nice and cozy. The lace edging used in this scarf is from a stitch dictionary titled Super Stitches Knitting. A garter stitch border rolls over nicely, so you only see the stocking stitch body and lovely lace edging. (This rolling can be prevented if desired.)
Much like Traveling Woman, this pattern is easily adjusted to your preference. Like the triangular shawl shape instead? Simply knit more repeats of the increase section, and then begin your decreases immediately. Prefer fingering weight yarn? Bust out your scale and weigh your yarn periodically.
