A beautiful silky scarf, with just a touch of weight, is perfect for your next Italian vacation. Constructed like a stole, this scarf begins with a provisional cast-on. The middle is worked, and then the first lace end. The lace is bound off using a “crochet” chain worked on knitting needles. The provisional cast-on is then picked up and the second end is worked, as for the first end, so that the two ends are symmetrical.

This pattern includes full written and charted instructions.

I first met Teresa online as a member of my very first Pins & Lace Club. She is a screaming fast (and avid) knitter who soon became a test knitter for me. And a friend. Even though we have not yet met in real life, I know that when we do, we’ll stay up until the wee hours solving the problems of the universe.

Teresa’s scarf is perfect for her yearly vacation. She loves to knit a little something silky, and in years past, she’s knitted scarves to take.

This scarf is constructed with a provisional cast-on, and then one end is knit to the end and bound off. Next, the other end is picked up from the cast-on and worked in the same way, making the scarf symmetrical.
Knitting needles are used for the “crochet” chain bind-off.

Welcome to year four of my subscription series (now complete)! The idea for my first ebook subscription (year one: the pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I reached my goal that year, and the next year I was back for more challenge. After that, I realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions. I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! 7 is one of my favorite numbers, and so I am still doing 7 small (and not so small) shawls with 3 (my other favorite number!) accessories thrown in.

When we reached 5,000 people this year, we had a little contest in my Ravelry forum, and so the Year 4 shawls are named after 7 winners, and the accessories are named after…well, you’ll see! I am so looking forward to getting to know the winners a little bit more and coming up with the perfect design for each of them!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending March 30, 2015. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern. Patterns will have charts and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of one skein of sock yarn or an amount of sock yarn comparable to that needed for a pair of socks. Some will be two colors, and maybe even three! But you won’t need more than one skein of any color. There will be a few little extras sprinkled throughout and all patterns will be available to purchase separately!

Note that purchasing the eBook represents a significant discount over purchasing each pattern separately. No refunds can be given for buying the patterns separately and then, at a later date, purchasing the complete eBook. If you have made a single pattern purchase in error and wished to purchase the book instead, please contact me within a week to resolve the issue. Thank you!
