I designed this scarf for my sister-in-law, Bessy, who dreams of Florida, warm weather, and summer days, but I took the photos in the backyard of my 1877 farmhouse in Vermont during winter! Bessy found the yarn on the internet and posted a photo of it on her Facebook timeline, so I ordered a skein and put it in my stash.

When I finally got around to knitting up a scarf with this yarn, I went to look up the details and found that the color was no longer available on the Expression Fiber Arts website, although I did find another pink and grey color called “Pink Elephant.” Of course this scarf can be knit in any hand-painted colorway, as well as in solids, semi-solids, tweeds, and self-striping yarns. The lace pattern is simple enough that it will not fight with even complex colorways.

So go order a skein of Pink Elephant or another color that catches your eye at, or go shopping in your stash!

Scarf is started from the center and worked out toward the ends.
