Diagonal Lace Scarf Using Insouciant Merino & Angora

Diagonal Lace Scarf Using Insouciant Merino & Angora

"Local lace and bunnies from Bainbridge!"

Bainbridge Island wool champion Carrie DeFoe brought in a small, limited edition batch of a merino/French angora blend that seemed, as soon as we saw it, destined for our simple, beginner-worthy Churchmouse Diagonal Lace Scarf. The wool in the merino opens beautifully when blocked, and the bit of angora gives us the  'Ahhhh' factor. So soft, so pretty!

Our pattern includes written instructions, a diagram, and tips on reading the eyelet pattern.  As you begin to 'read' your lace knitting, the clues you find will keep you right on track!

Grab the pattern (if you don't already have it) and yarn below. You can read more about the yarn on the Insouciant Merino/French Angora page. You'll need three skeins to make the size shown; one more skein will get you another 20" of scarf length.

Approx. 10 x 60"/25 x 150cm.

3 skeins Insouciant Merino/French Angora (145 yds/133m each).
Or approx. 435 yds/400m of sport-weight yarn.

US 8 (5mm) needle, or size to obtain gauge.

17 sts = 4" in pattern stitch, after soaking and blocking.

We can't say it enough—as with any lace project, the beauty is in the blocking. If you're curious halfway through your project, try putting your live stitches on a piece of waste yarn and block it early! This will give a little bit of the "Ahh!" factor to carry you through the rest of the project. Re-block the whole thing when you finish for a gorgeous result!
