Oh Clementine!

New scarf, knit for the mother of the twins for whom I recently made little beanies.

It’s knit with Debbie Bliss Andes in sage. I used knit pro polished wood 4mm needles. It’s a very easy pattern, with just four rows in the pattern repeat. It just takes a while to make it long enough to wear comfortably! I think the lace pattern is gorgeous and would make a nice panel running down the front of a cardigan or other large item.

This is the ‘right’ or front side of the scarf:

This is what the back looks like:

Here and in the next one (though the photos are terrible) you can get a sense of the little circles which form the lace pattern. It’s a pattern inspired by clementine oranges and so the lace work amounts to neat little rows of circles on the front side of the scarf. The silk/alpaca blend I used makes for a lovely, squishy scarf but, because of the fuzziness of the yarn, doesn’t show off the pattern especially well.
