Knit me a Vintage Lace Scarf

baby fern scarf, baby fern pattern, free knit patterns, how to knit, knit lace patterns, lace stitches, vintage knits,

Baby Fern Scarf is an easy vintage lace knit pattern with the cast on edge lightly scalloped. I started to knit the scarf prior to our trip up north last week. Naturally, I took the knitting with me expecting to knit a bit during the evenings but somehow never even took the knitting out of my suitcase, obviously, I was too exhausted from our daily exploring of historic sites to contemplate any knitting in the evening. However, now I am back home and ready to finish this delightful little project and I thought it would be great to share this elegant lace pattern with you, thinking you may want to try it yourself.

I have estimated the length of the scarf based on remaining yarn weight, so when I finish the scarf it should be approx. 75in (190cm) in length. I will definitely post a photo of the finished scarf here and on Ravelry when it is done.

I decided to use this vintage baby fern stitch for my new knit scarf for this winter, and I thought it would be interesting to use a colour-changing yarn. I also wanted to experiment with new yarns I haven't tried before.

Hayfield Spirit DK is a lovely self-striping double knitting yarn, it comes in a range of amazing colourful shades, including mixes of beautiful neutrals and more vibrant ones too. I chose a lovely pinky, peachy, browny, grey colour because it reminded me of the autumn leaves, the colour on the label is Grace 404

Hayfield Spirit DK is 80% Acrylic and 20% Wool and for those of you who prefer to machine wash your knit garments, this yarn is machine washable.   Hayfield Spirit DK yarn comes in 100g balls so I am hoping I will be able to make this Baby Fern Scarf from just one (1) ball.
