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!
