Bare Naked Wools by Knitspot
An airy scarf or stole featuring an allover filigree motif with texture and depth that pops in a springy lace yarn. A handpainted colorway is put to good use in this pattern, where it will highlight the undulating motif. While the pattern is visually complex, the stitchwork is not difficult, with wrong side rows almost entirely in purl. It’s a great choice for a beginner/intermediate lace knitter or a more experienced knitter looking for something to relax with.
This frothy cowl in two sizes (S/L) is pure delight when knit with a super-soft luxury blend yarn, for optimal drape and hand. Starting at the hem with a frothy cable and lace pattern and working upward through the body in garter stitch and mesh, the piece lends itself easily to resizing in width or depth as yarn supply allows. Shown in a two-color arrangement, the knitter could easily add a third shade or opt to work in a solid color throughout.
Crooked Little Scarf
A lightweight unisex lace scarf in two sizes (S/L), featuring an allover zigzag motif for textural contrast (shown in size L).

This light and airy crescent shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) begins at the hem with a cable and lace pattern that segues to a garter stitch and mesh body. “Pi” shaping is used throughout the easy to work lace sections with concealed decrease rows, while the shoulder area is shaped with short rows for a lovely fit. Shown in a two-color arrangement, the knitter could easily add a third shade or work the shawl in a solid color—the design lends itself nicely to gradient colorways as well.
A wide lace scarf is so versatile for late fall and winter, when the wind tries to find its way into every unprotected niche.

A good beginning lace project
Wasp and Rose
A Victorian triangle shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) to work from neck to hem in fine laceweight yarn.

Using thinner or heavier yarn than suggested, and different needles will produce a variation in size that remains proportionate with the original dimensions.
