Fiddlesticks Knitting Patterns and Yarns
The Wavy Lace Scarves explore what happens to the edges of knitting when yarnovers and decreases are offset. The Wavy Leaf Scarf expands and contracts, emphasized by a leaf motif which "grows" up the middle (below right). The Wavy Bee Scarf employs a more subtle wave which moves from side-to-side in a sinuous fashion, with "bees" buzzing up the middle. Either one is fun to knit as you watch the stitches take on a life of their own!
Both scarves are worked in stocking stitch by starting at one end and repeating the chart until desired length is achieved or yarn is used up. The scarves are suitable for Intermediate knitters, but the Wavy Bee Scarf is a bit more challenging due to the interesting Bee lace motif. Detailed explanation of how to work the motif is included.
NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting Patterns use charts.
Recommended for Intermediate to Advanced knitters.
Knit with confidence — here's why!
Gauge: Not crucial, however, size of scarf will vary depending on tension and blocking, and if you are a loose knitter, you may need more yarn.
2 balls of DK-weight, each ball 50 g / 115 m. Sample knit with 100% raw silk yarn.
Can vary, but approximately 7.5 inches wide x 46 inches long after blocking. A longer scarf can easily be worked, but more yarn will be required.
Recommended needle sizes:
3.5 mm (US 4) needles
or size to obtain gauge
(needles with pointy tips such as Addi lace knitting needles are recommended for the Wavy Bee Scarf as it makes it easier to perform actions such as "purl 2 together through the back loops")
