Beginner Lace Stitch Scarf

Here's a cute little easy lace for beginners. I know it looks a little messy but with lace, it needs some steaming and/or shaping. This is how it looks before all that.

I decided to use this stitch for this yarn. It makes an automatic scalloped edge which I think will do nicely for this scarf.

More photos later and I'll post the pattern then.

Knit Lace Pattern Design

You can see that when you're designing you just never know what you're going to get. I love the stitch I had chosen but it might not work too well with the yarn I have to use.

One problem I think is that the needles could be too big or the yarn to small. Also, this stitch might not be good for a shawl as it seems to snag very easily and you don't want that.

I worked for only about an hour or so and have decided to rip it out and either try other yarn or a different stitch.

Pretty Lace Swatch

Found this pretty lace pattern I think will make a wonderful shawl. What do you think? I'm not sure the name of the stitch pattern but it's a very easy one. I will post a pattern real soon so keep watching.

Here's how the other lace scarf/stole or whatever it turns out to be is looking now that I've knitted quite a few more rows.

Red Heart Sport Weight Yarn Lace Stole

Don't know why that came out blue so here's another shot of it.

Lots has happened in the last several weeks to me and my family. AND my blog. But we're back.

Here's the latest project I'm working on and hope to get done as soon as I can because I have so many ideas running through my head. This project is a lace stole and I'm using Red Heart Sport Weight yarn that I had in my stash. I'm using a number 6 needle which were my Mother's needles so this stole is kind of special. Silly, I know.

Since I had trouble with corrupt links on my blog, I am going to try to start designing my own patterns. Stay tuned for that because that takes lots of time.
