"Forza Scarf" by Laura Nelkin

One-skein pattern alert!

On a whim, and wanting to play with our new, exclusive and ultrasoft “Sweet 16” non-superwash merino from Urth, Mitzi worked up a “Forza Scarf” by Season 2 Star Laura Nelkin.

“Everyone needs one of these - in all the colors!” Mitzi enthused.

The designer calls this pattern “your gateway drug to unexpected but simple lace techniques!” Worked in two halves and grafted in the center, this single sided lace scarf will teach you the intricacies of working shaped lace, integrated i-cord edging and reading a chart.
