This is the lace rib scarf, aka the Cashmere Scarf from the Australian Creative Knitting issue 17. I used just 1 ball (plus a tiny bit) of Filatura Di Crosa Zara yarn, leftover from a previous project.
I finished it a couple of weeks ago, and had been gifted for a friend’s birthday since. Unfortunately, this is the only photo I managed to take before being gifted, so no modelled shot. When I just finished the scarf, it looked kind of short, but you’ve got to love blocking lace. After blocking, the scarf stretched to about 145cm (57 inches), which I’m happy with.
This is also a quick knit, and I love how the scarf is reversible. The pattern is the same each row, but somehow it didn’t get boring.
Btw, if you haven’t seen yet, the Knitty calendar contest winners have been announced. No I didn’t win, and I can see why, the photos of the winners really are amazing! I love them all, they’re very creative indeed!
