Southeast Asia Indigenous Design Lace Knit Scarf
The pattern for this short scarf (39in/99cm) was inspired by a Southeast Asia indigenous beaded belt. Although I wouldn't normally use a yarn with a variegated colorway for a lace pattern, in this case I was hoping that the design would be more muted, and I'm happy with the result.
My yarn choice was a smooth silk/wool blend in a fingering weight (color: bronze), with a nice sheen, making for an elegant finished product with a vintage feel. Note the differences in the two ends: at one end, a point becomes part of the pattern; and at the other, the picots create a frilled edge.
Basic lace knitting skills are needed, but otherwise it's a straight-forward pattern. I used less than 1/3 of a 100g skein of this yarn, so there's plenty left over for another project!
