This is the 'easy lace' scarf on page 80.
Yarn is Cherry Tree Hills Laceweight Cascade silk in the colourway 'foxy lady'. I used 1.6 oz.
The colours are beautiful, no?
After careful washing and a couple of wears, the silk has developed a sort of fuzzy halo. Not sure I like that.
I have a silk chiffon scarf that is just exactly the right length and width for wrapping the way I like, so I altered the pattern to match. It's about 5 inches wide and 72 inches long.
The join between the borders and the centre of the scarf is interesting. Mine is a bit wonky - it seems to droop down to one side. The one pictured in the book on page 81 droops down to the right - it might just be the angle of the photo. More likely that I have made a mistake in the joining, but I can't for the life of me see it.
Anyway, I enjoyed my 'easy'. Now for some 'intermediate' action with the Myrtle leaf shawl in Misti Alpaca lace. Best wishes from the purler.
