Fir Cone Lace Scarf - Isager Spinni Wool 1 Version

Fir Cone Lace Scarf - Isager Spinni Wool 1 Version

"Just the thing for a romp on the moors!"

The classic eyelet pattern of our Fir Cone Lace Scarf is lacy enough to look pretty and opaque enough to be cozy. Designer Becky ffitch, our lace teacher, was inspired by traditional Shetland lace patterns found in historic stitch dictionaries. We think this is the definition of romantic!

We chose Isager Spinni Wool 1 for this version because of its crisp hand and delicious color palette. Rooted in the knitting traditions of Denmark, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands, Spinni is a light, lace-weight yarn with a single-ply construction, distinct structure, and precise stitch definition. Don’t skip the wet blocking step when you are done with your scarf! Your project will soften, settle, and reveal a beautiful finish.

Grab the pattern below and choose a color from our selection of favorite shades of Spinni; two skeins will make the scarf shown. If you want to see all the colors available, just head over to the Isager Spinni Wool 1 page.

Approx. 7½ x 72"/19 x 183cm, after blocking.

2 skeins Isager Spinni Wool 1 (330 yds/302m each); shown in Color 15s. Or approx. 660 yds/604m of lace-weight yarn.

US 4 (3.5mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.

Plus spare needle same size or smaller.
4 locking stitch markers.
Darning needle to finish.
Blocking wires and/or T-pins.

Approx. 24 sts = 4"/10cm in Fir Cone lace pattern, after blocking.

The Fir Cone stitch pattern is a multiple of 10 + 5. Each 10-st repeat of the lace pattern is picked up from two repeats of the edging (two points). Thus, to widen the scarf, you must work two additional edging points for each additional 10-st repeat of the pattern.

Because this piece is done in garter stitch, it will be difficult to distinguish the 'right' side from the 'wrong' side. For this reason, put a safety pin or locking marker on the right side—the side on which you pattern (odd numbered rows). That way, when the side with the marker is facing you, you know you are knitting an odd-numbered row.

When blocking, lay the piece out to the correct (or desired) length first, then really stretch it out for width. This is because it will tend to stretch quite a bit lengthwise, so you need to control that, and get as much width as possible. Use pins to pull out the points of the lace edging and the scallops along the side.
