This is a lightweight, skinny scarf that is knit flat from one end to the other and is flanked by simple garter borders and edges to keep the lace in place. The scarf begins with a long tail cast-on and a garter border, followed by a few repeats of the hexagonal eyelet motif resembling summer flowers. The lace then gives way to easy Stockinette that showcases the beauty of hand-dyed yarn. The scarf then ends with the same number of lace rows and finishes with the garter border. The lace pattern consists of simple knit increases/decreases and yarnovers, and will make for a great learning project for adventurous lace beginners and equally exciting for lace enthusiasts.
Before you begin the CO, weigh your yarn and note the total yarn amount on hand (total g).
