Frosty is a rhythmic chunky lace scarf. The main texture is abbreviated with edgings and diamonds of moss stitch that echo the chevron stripes. The strong style lines and generous width make it a perfect accessory for colder days, so be sure to choose a cosy yarn with excellent stitch definition.
Instructions for the lace pattern are written and charted, so you can choose the directions that suit you best. If you’re new to lace and looking for an accessory pattern to acquaint yourself with the techniques, I hope you’ll give Frosty a go. If you’re a more experienced knitter, you will enjoy the easy pace of this project – this chunky lace scarf was designed for weekend knitting!
As written, the finished dimensions of Frosty are approximately 30cm/12in wide and 151cm/60.5in long. The pattern includes guidance for altering the length and width.
Apart from knit and purl stitches, there are:
- Lace increases and decreases (yarn over, ssk, k2tog, sl1-k2tog-psso)
