Tea Leaf Lace Scarf - Kidsilk Haze Version

Tea Leaf Lace Scarf - Kidsilk Haze Version

"Tea leaf lace...how very Churchmouse!"

Encouraging for new lace knitters and relaxing for seasoned lace knitters, this stitch pattern is fairly simple and the clues in the knitting quite easy to read. A simple rectangle can be styled so many ways. Wear your scarf long, chelsea-knotted, or wrapped around for cowl coziness!

We've long turned to Kidsilk Haze for lace - the strength and sheen of the silk thread, and the lovely mohair filling in the spaces. End result? A sheer scarf that weighs almost nothing, yet long and wide enough for a substantial scarf. Or just imagine it shawl size (five skeins) - a show stopper!

Pick up the pattern below and choose a color from our selection of favorite shades of Rowan Kidsilk Haze-–you'll need 2 skeins for the scarf size shown. If you want to see all the colors available, just head over to the Kidsilk Haze page.

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

Crochet hook US G/6 (4mm) or larger for provisional cast-on.
Smooth DK-weight waste yarn for provisional cast-on.
5 (9) stitch markers; plus 1 locking marker.
Darning needle to finish.
Blocking wires and T-pins.

GAUGE
Approx. 23 sts = 4"/10cm in lace pattern, after blocking.

This piece is worked from a provisional cast-on; both halves are worked from center to lace edging. Thus both lace edgings are worked in the same direction and are identical. You'll knit the first half, return to your original cast on, unzip the provisional cast-on onto a needle, and then work the second half--no grafting required!

Be sure to use a smooth DK-weight yarn for your provisional cast-on; smaller yarn will not give you the size of stitch you need when picking up for the second half.

Lace pattern is both charted and written out - you can follow along either way. Some new-to-lace knitters prefer to start with the written text, and then move to the chart once they can see the pattern forming. Either way - remember that the wrong side is a purl row; a built-in rest!
