English Mesh Lace Scarf Using Rowan Island Blend Fine
This simple, yet lovely stitch pattern of the English Mesh Lace Scarf is perfect for learning to ‘read’ your knitting! A four-plus-four-row repeat and easy-to-see centered stitch alignments make it relaxing and satisfying—for accomplished lace knitters, too! Add beads for a pretty sparkle here and there.
