Have you ever admired the intricate ironwork you can find in beautiful old libraries? In the library stacks, the rows of shelving can be quite fanciful and lovely — it was tracery like this that inspired me to design ‘In the Stacks.’ This sport weight scarf features a beginner-friendly diagonal lace with the look of library ironwork.

Throughout the design, sections of the lace alternate with sections of bias stockinette and garter stitch, making for an engaging knit. Shaped like a rectangle with pointed ends, the finished piece is easy to wear and eye-catching, rich with interesting diagonals and textures. The two-color version was inspired by Purlificknitter, a splendid knitter who tested this design. It is an easy yet dramatic way to combine two beautiful colors.

For a shawl version of this design, see the Bookish Shawl.

Miss Babs Yummy 3-Ply (100% Superwash Merino; 335 yd/5.2 oz (306m/150g) skeins) 2 (3) skeins, shown in Suspense.

Or approximately 575 (930) yards/526 (850) meters of sport weight yarn.

Two-color version requires 1 skein of Yummy 3-Ply in Color A and 1 (2) skein(s) in Color B.

Or approximately 285 (370) yards/261 (338) meters of Color A and 290 (560) yards/265 (512) meters of Color B.

For best results when working with hand dyed yarns we strongly suggest alternating skeins of the same color throughout your project.
