This scarf is the first project in the Affirmation collection, to be released over the coming months. The full collection includes this scarf, a pair of socks, a hat, a shawlette, and a circular shawl, all of which use original stitch patterns derived from positive words.

The lace stitch pattern used in this crescent scarf uses numbers derived from the word “Achieved” to place the eyelets in the lace. (Note, the word is not spelled out in the lace. The letters were converted to numbers that were then used in the design of the stitch pattern.)

The scarf measures 58½” (148cm) along the top edge and 6¾” (17cm) deep at the centre after blocking when worked to pattern tension of 19 sts and 46 rows to 4”/10cm of garter stitch. Tension for Achieved pattern is best measured over one blocked pattern repeat which should measure 4”/10cm across and 1¼”/3cm high. Exact tension is not vital but it may affect your yardage requirement and finished scarf size.

You will need:
300 yards (275 m) sport weight yarn
4mm (US 6) knitting needles
2 stitch markers (plus additional markers if desired for marking pattern repeats)
Darning needle (for weaving in ends)

You need to be able to: work lace from either charted or written instructions, work short rows, work a stretchy cast-on (a link is given to a suggested tutorial in the pattern). Both charted and written instructions are given in the pattern. It is NOT necessary to read charts to work this pattern.
