Grown-up pink

strangling vine lace scarf

One skein of Spa acrylic/bamboo yarn in a color they call rose bisque I think, a free pattern from Ravelry, and a few minutes here and there over the past few weeks resulted in this scarf (Ravelry link). The name of the pattern is Strangling Vine which hardly seems appropriate for such a pretty pattern. The pattern is easily memorized but I kept wandering off track so it took me longer than it should have. I also added a made up border to each end. By the time I was done the whole thing was curled up in a ball but flattened out nicely with a little stretch and steam. The scarf is light, soft, not too long and should make a nice accessory for the boy’s first grade teacher who seems to favor this shade of pink. Too bad I didn’t finish it before the end of school last year.

    That’s really pretty. I started a scarf w/ that strangling vine pattern once, but couldn’t get it in my head, so I frogged the project.

    It looks beautiful. I have never knitted a lacey thing. It looks very complicated to me. Very nicely done.
