Very Pretty Lace Scarf In Coorie
Lace may conjure delicate gowns or teatime tablecloths, but what about when you knit lace in 100% super kid mohair? Well, then it’s delicate and beautiful, but also soft and cozy!
Our new Coorie brings a lush beauty to our Very Pretty Lace Scarf. Its subtle glisten and slightly fluffy halo ensure that it is very pretty, indeed!
Originally published in Purl Soho co-owner Joelle Hoverson’s More Last Minute Knitted Gifts (now out of print), this simple pattern is still a total keeper! Knit in the round, it is a wonderfully voluminous tube with no wrong side and the oomph to wrap buoyantly around your neck.
A no-sweat four-row repeat, the only stitches you’ll need beyond knits and purls are knit 2 together’s, slip slip knits, and yarn overs. So straightforward, you can use all that extra brain space to think about the beauty your own two hands are creating!
To get started, pick up six skeins of Coorie… Maybe in this magnificent Wild Mustard color, or in whatever very pretty color you choose for your Very Pretty Scarf!
UPDATE: NOW IN QUARTZ
Knit in our merino-suri Quartz, our Very Pretty Lace Scarf is warm, soft, and has a delicate halo. Quartz takes dye beautifully, seeming to glow like its namesake, and a gently heathered mélange of color adds even more depth and interest to this scarf. We used lovely Hydrangea Blossom, anticipating a need for a mid-winter pick-me-up, but take a look and pick the color that lifts your spirit… Very pretty, indeed!
