Sunshine Pineapples Scarf


Sometimes you just need to make something for yourself! I have been wanting a lightweight lace scarf or wrap for a long time.

I was inspired by the pineapple lace made by my great grandmother, but I have no use for a piece of lace. So, I decided to adapt the pattern to make myself a lace scarf. This scarf has just the drape that I have been looking for and is wide enough that, despite its lace pattern, it is reasonably warm when wrapped around my neck.




    It is stitched with two skeins (about 920m) of Knit Picks Stroll tonal fingering-weight yarn in Poppy Field, with a 3.75mm hook.
    This scarf will require blocking to show the true beauty of the pattern. After blocking, my scarf is about 10 inches wide and 7.5 feet long.
