Tea Leaf Lace Scarf – Lang Seta Tweed Version

Tea Leaf Lace Scarf – Lang Seta Tweed Version

"Tea leaf very Churchmouse!"

Fiber choice makes such a dramatic difference in lace patterns, and we were curious how our new Tea Leaf Lace pattern would look using Lang Seta Tweed . Quite nice, as we suspected! With its fine flecks of color, Seta Tweed's, well, tweediness gives this piece a casual look, while the heavier yarn weight (from lace to dk) gives substance and weight. Still light though - the cotton mixed with silk is soft and drapey and cool - great for warmer climates, and blocks out beautifully.

Encouraging for new lace knitters and relaxing for those more seasoned, the Tea Leaf Lace stitch pattern is fairly simple and the clues in the knitting quite easy to read. And simple rectangle scarves can be styled so many ways. Wear it long, Chelsea-knotted, or wrapped around for cowl coziness!

Pick up the pattern below and choose a color of Seta Tweed-–you'll need 4 skeins for the scarf size shown.

Scarf: Approx. 8"/20cm across x 75"/190cm long, blocked.

4 skeins Lang Seta Tweed (109 yds/100m each). Shown here in color 0006 Lt. Denim.

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 stitch markers; plus 1 locking marker.
Darning needle to finish.
Blocking wires and T-pins.

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!
