Hello knitters!

Hope you all are doing well. If you’ve visited Purl Avenue recently, you might have noticed some changes to the website. Last week I added a couple of new resources, Knitting Needles Conversion Chart and Yarn Weights, that will help you on your knitting adventures πŸ™‚ In addition, I’ve moved Knitting Abbreviations and Tutorials as well as the two new pages to Knitting Resources in the main menu. This will help with navigating the site.

Now on to more exciting news. I am very happy to say that my Spring Lace Infinity Scarf is finally complete! This project has taken me one whole month to complete (includes both designing and knitting). And during this month, I have seen the arrival of Spring and added a stash buster project, the Easy Day Knitted HeadbandΒ to the free patterns collection.

Those of you who’ve followed the progress of this scarf on social media know that this scarf is knitted using Shibui’s Reed yarn. I went with linen because it is a light and breathable fiber which makes it perfect for warm weather. Depending on where you live, this linen scarf is perfect for Spring and Summer. Another thing to point out about linen is that the yarn is somewhat course to the touch but will soften after every use.

The edging of the Spring Lace Infinity Scarf has a 3″ (7.6 cm) lace design and the body is knitted using a combination of stockinette stitch and stockinette elongated stitch.

After blocking, this scarf measures about 14″ (35.5 cm) wide with a circumference of 64″ (162.5 cm).

    Thanks for such a beautiful pattern! When I was doing the “d 5: *k2tog, k4, yo; rep from * to end of round. Remove stitch marker and k1. Replace stitch marker.” part, I replaced the stitch marker AFTER I k1; when I knit the next row, I had an extra stitch. Was I supposed to put the m AFTER the k1, or BEFORE? Thanks!

    Beautiful scarf, thank you! I just have a question. If I only wanted it to be half the length, would I just do half the repeats? For instance the pattern says “Repeat Rounds 1-5 four more times (total of 25 rounds).” So could I do 12 rounds instead? I know it may sound redundant but I’m not an experienced knitter in changing patterns to suit so I just want to be sure. Do you think I could use only 2 skeins then of yarn?

    1. Purl Avenue

      When you say half the length do you mean you want it to wrap around the neck only once? If so you would cast on half the number of stitches, maybe 180 stitches. If you want to make it not as wide, cut back on the number of rounds like how you mentioned. Hope that makes sense.

    Enjoyed your video, and was pleased to see you using a variation of the European method of knitting (yarn in left hand). I hold the yarn as though I was crocheting, so the yarn through is a single movement.
    Great Job!

    Hello. I recently started knitting and have been looking for patterns. And I’m so glad I stumbled across your site. I think this is probably the prettiest scarf pattern I’ve seen — anywhere! Thank you so, so much for sharing. Have a great 2017. πŸ™‚

    When you blocked – did you pin a lot? I’m in the stockinette section right now, but I notice that my cast-on-edge is actually looking scalloped, whereas yours in the photos is straight. I think the yarn-over and skipped stitches from the cast on are the reason it ended up scalloped.
