Winding Road Scarf Pattern

The current circumstances have allowed for a lot more knitting and spinning now that I am not travelling around, which is one of the positive things that has come out of the last few months. So I have a flurry of finished objects and patterns I want to share, including this beginners attempt at lace stitches. I made this design up as I went, and although not strictly symmetrical, I like the way it wanders and meanders around. This was knitted over such a long period, that it definitely accompanied me all over the place whilst I was getting time to knit a couple of rows here and there, so I think it is more than likely a product of my subconscious that made its way out and onto the needles! I thought I would share a few photos of the finished garment, and some places I have been lately in our little nook of the Chiltern Hills that have inspired this design…

Knitted in a wool and mohair DK blend, the fading striped yarn, made the lerfect backdrop for winding lace zig zags up the length of the scarf.

I will write this very simple pattern up, as it is perfect for beginners to get to know a vital lace stitch that is the foundation of so many intricate lace designs. For such a simple technique, it makes for a really striking pattern overall, so I am really pleased with it 🙂
