Fishtail LaceI decided to progress futher with lace work and selected this pattern - a very pretty fishtail lace.
So the name is not romantic - that does not mean the end product is not beautiful nontheless.
This scarf was made with 8 ply yarn with 4mm needles.
Pattern is as follows:
Cast on 31 stitches.
Row1 : K1, *yf, k3, sl1, k2tog, psso, k3, yf, k1, rep from *
Row 2: Purl all stitches
Row 3: K1, *k1, yf, k2, sl1, k2tog, psso, k2, yf, k2, rep from *
Row 4: Purl all stitches
Row 5: K1, *k2, yf, k1, sl1, k2tog, psso, k1, yf, k3, rep from *
Row 6: Purl all stitches
Row 7: K1, *k3, yf, sl1, k2tog, psso, yf, k4, rep from *
Row 8: Purl all stitches.
Repeat pattern until scarf is desired length. If the scarf is too narrow, just cast on extra multiples of 10 and do more repeats.
This pattern is reasonably easy to remember.
A fringe can be added if desired. The ends of the fishtails will be pointy, which was why I attached the fringes to the points only.
I made it for a friend of mine who had unfortunately not been receiving all the things I've sent her. They all disappeared in the mail.
I guess 3rd time's the charm.
