Candle flame scarf

Posted: July 12, 2006 in FREE PATTERNS, Main Page

HPIM3865

Yarn: Malabrigo 100% merino worsted weight yarn (color was a one time special called “pot surprise” I bought in 2004), 2 hanks

Needles: size 8US

Gauge is not important.

Finished size after blocking: 72″ long by 8″ wide.

NOTES:
When the pattern says sl2, you will slip 2 sts together from the left hand needle to the right hand needle.
The flames will undulate between 3 and 2 across naturally in the stitch pattern without casting on anymore sts. That is how you get the wavy edge, the stitch pattern does it for you.
You will knit this in 2 halves and kitchener graft them together at the center.HPIM3864

    Hey, I started this scarf and I really love it, but I like to knit my lace (If you want to call this Lace) from a chart, so I charted out the directions. I thought you might want to post it, since I know a lot of other knitters like to work from Charts. It almost fried my brain trying to figure out how to chart it, but I did it! Here’s the link:
