Perfect Spring Scarf

Perfect Spring Scarf

Here in Minnesota our weather can keep you guessing well into spring. Recently we’ve had a small wave of warmer weather and it got me thinking of spring. I’ve had this beautiful Butterfly Super 10 yarn that I picked up at a thrift store of all places. It’s been in my bin for well over a year waiting for a project.

As our weather warms up here I often find that I’m in need of a scarf that’s a bit lighter this time of year. I finally had some inspiration and thought that the Pebble Lace Stitch would make a wonderful light scarf and would compliment this yarn nicely. So I sat down and got to work.

The beauty of this pattern is that it works up quickly and you can stop when it reaches the length you are looking for. I made this one quite long. I chose to do that because with the added length comes more ways to wrap and wear it.

I hope you enjoy the pattern! I will also be adding this pattern as a PDF in my ravelry shop
