I love this scarf and wear it all winter. It was my first ever design. It started as a sampler for lace patterns and then grew into a scarf.
I used three lace patterns from Barbara Walker’s A Treasury of Knitting. The middle pattern is Lace Diamond Chain:
Which is surrounded by Cat’s Paw and Four Stitch Rib:
Between each pattern is a column of reverse stocking stitch (purl on the right side, knit on the wrong) and I believe I slipped the first stitch of every row.
Here is a chart of the pattern. I have only shown the right side rows as the wrong side rows are all purl EXCEPT for the stitch between each pattern.
Read the chart right to left.
I haven’t tested anything from the chart, so I may have made mistakes.
If you click on the chart, it should take you too a bigger version.
“A Touch of Twist” Colour Spectrum. It is a Sport Weight Wool. I used about 100 – 200 yards.
I don’t have this written down. Try a 6 or 7 US (4 or 4.5 mm).
Cast on 46 stitches. Knit four rows.
Start working from the bottom of the chart.
There are 48 rows shown on the chart, because this is one repeat, since Cat’s Paw is 6 rows and Lace Diamond Chain is 16 rows. For my scarf I repeated the chart 5 times, but I like very long scarves.
After finishing your last repeat, knit 4 rows and bind off loosely.
