Frosty is a rhythmic lace scarf 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 – and if you’re a more seasoned knitter, you will enjoy the relaxed pace of this project.
As written, the finished dimensions of Frosty are approximately 30cm/12in wide and 151cm/60.5in long, and the pattern includes guidance for altering the length and width.
Apart from knit and purl, there are:
- Lace increases and decreases (yarn over, ssk, k2tog, sl1-k2tog-psso)
The photographed sample was knitted in Rowan Cocoon, a now-discontinued chunky weight yarn. Substitution advice is given in the pattern notes, but you may also like to visit YarnSub for more immediate information – or consult with the staff in your local yarn shop. They’ll be more than happy to help!
