Kool Aid attempt 1

I’ve finally made the leap into yarn dyeing with Kool Aid. It smells to high heaven but it’s pretty effective to dye with.

This pattern is with my first attempt – it’s Pink Lemonade, Grape, Cherry, Lemonade and Mandarin – I’m not 100% sure about the colourway but the lace pattern (from The Harmony Guide stitch book) shows it off rather well.

Lace Scarf Pattern

Using 3mm needles and sock weight yarn, Cast on 58 sts (the pattern is in multiple of 9 + 4)

Row 1 (wrong side): purl

Row 2: K3, *yf, K2, sl1, k1, psso, k2tog, k2, yf, k1; rep from * to last st, k1

Row 3: purl

Row 4: K2, *yf, K2, sl1, k1, psso, k2tog, k2, yf, k1; rep from * to last 2 sts, K2

Repeat these 4 rows

Simple but effective

I’ve had this pattern up for 2 years and only now realised that I’d not written the pattern out properly!

  1. Hi. I absolutely love this pattern and I’m very appreciative that you’ve posted it for free. I just had one question… I had to rip out the beginning several times, before I finally had to just repeat the last 2 rows instead of repeating all four rows.. Is this just a typo, or am I knitting oddly? Thanks again and take care 🙂

  2. Hi Stephanie
    I’ll have a look at this when I get home as looking at it again now, I’m not 100% sure myself!
    Will let you know, I have a feeling it is all 4 rows but that there’s a typo somewhere… hmm…

  3. I’ve amended this – loads of typos, can’t believe I’d not spotted it before – hopefully this will work for you now!
    So sorry!
