Herringbone Lace Scarf & Shawl PDF
Designed to work with all those wonderful self-striping yarns with long stretches of color, like Noro, this Herringbone Lace Scarf & Shawl by Kate Atherley is perfect for just that. A successful design for these yarns keeps the stitchwork simple and lets the colors show off. The pattern used here causes the rows to scallop, making lovely wavy stripes.
There are two versions of this design: a rectangular scarf and a semi-circular shawl. The scarf is a terrific first lace project - there’s only one pattern rows, with a simple 12-stitch repeat. The shawl is a great next step: the construction is a little bit more challenging but very rewarding. IN both cases, the patterning is very straightforward and easily memorized for a good travel project.
