You might be putting on a plain T-shirt when the weather is warm and flowery… but you find that your outfit needs a little sumpin sumpin to make it work. This is your Sumpin! A little lace scarf that can be wrapped around your neck any which way, pointed ends over a shoulder or in the front. Worked in a 4 row repeat, this simple cellular lace pattern adds texture and depth without feeling too warm, heavy or complicated. Fingering weight yarn makes this lightweight and floaty, but the gauge is flexible and laceweight to dk weight yarn will work. With approximately 450 yards of fingering weight and size 6 (4mm) needles, the scarf measures approximately 9” by 60”.
