In Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns, the lacy stitch pattern in this Valley Yarns Foreground Scarf goes by the humble name of “Lace Background Stitch.” But we think it’s time for it to enjoy the spotlight for a bit. Unlike other traditional knitted lace stitches, the structure here is not strictly formed by increases and decreases, but by a unique bundling sort of action that even relatively inexperienced knitters can perform. Bands of garter stitch help turn this “background” stitch into the main attraction on a uniquely textured fabric.

Comments about VALLEY YARNS 656 Foreground Scarf:

For those of us who have the "Treasury of Knitting Patterns" books by Barbara G. Walker, we know that we have hundreds of knitting patterns at our fingertips. Kirsten Hipsky took a humbly named pattern from one of those books and turned it into something fabulous. I can't wait to knit it in numerous colors and give as gifts.

I have only made a test swatch of this pattern and it looks very nice. I will make the scarf as soon as I finish several other projects.
