Pei Pattern
"A little bit of lace . . . a little bit of stockinette."

Another Brooklyn Tweed project named for a great architect (I.M. Pei, meet Mr. Koolhaas) this loop scarf, designed by Michele Wang, has a line of simple lace pyramids along the cast-on edge. Long enough to wrap double, Pei takes just one skein of Loft (a little less, actually) and, while the motifs are charted only, the legend is nicely written so it's a great beginning lace project. Pei was a favorite at our Madrona Fiber Arts booth. And nearly everyone we know who has knitted one has knitted another one. Pam says that when she switched to Addi Lace needles, with their nice sharp tapers, managing the K5togs for the 'nups' became a whole lot more fun!

FINISHED DIMENSIONS
43½" circumference, 5½" wide; measure relaxed, after blocking.

MATERIALS
Approx. 225 yards of fingering/sport-weight wool (few yarns have the woolen-spun loftiness of Loft, so if you sub another yarn, you should probably choose a sport weight). 1 skein of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (275 yds/251m); shown in Postcard.

One 24" circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge [US 5 (3.75mm) suggested].

GAUGE
22 sts/32 rounds = 4" in stockinette stitch, blocked.
