Hearts in Estonia Scarf

Hearts in Estonia Scarf – orange, 1 skein of sock yarn

Originally this has only been an improvised design. I wanted to knit a wee little scarf with lots of lace, bobbles and color that would make use of one skein of sock yarn. It’s basically a different interpretation of my Hearts in Estonia Shawl I blogged about back in April 2010. I took my inspiration from Nancy Bush’s book ‘Knitted Lace of Estonia’. After showing the pictures on Ravelry a lot of people asked about a pattern so I decided to invest the time and write it down and put it in a nice layout. The scarf pattern is available in the Ravelry pattern store for your knitting pleasure now. And I’m currently also working on the shawl pattern right now and I’m hoping to have it available soon.

The scarf is worked in two directions. It starts with an edging and a border sequence which are then put on hold. Next the edging and border sequence are worked a second time followed by the body part of the scarf for as long as you want your scarf to be. In the end both parts are grafted together. This way you not only have matching mirror images of the border but can also make the most out of your yarn.
