Villemo is a triangular scarf knit from side to side in garter stitch with a simple lace edging. Being a very shallow triangle, it fits nicely under your coat, without adding too much bulk. It is a small and fast project making it suitable as a last minute gift. Using only about 240 yards of yarn Villemo also is the perfect project to use a skein of lovely handspun yarn or that single skein of leftover yarn you didn’t know what to do with.

The pattern is suitable for beginner lace knitters. Specific required skills are listed below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
