Lisha Lace Scarf



I am very, very happy (and relieved) to finally publish my newest pattern....The Lisha Lace Scarf.

DETAILS:

Yarn: Sereknity's "Luxe", 2 oz./400 yards of light fingering weight 100% cashmere, Waterlily colorway.
Needles: US 5 straights or circs
Other supplies: 2 stitch markers, tapestry needle, measuring tape, scissors, blocking wires (optional)

Description:

"This luxury scarf pattern was designed with friendships in mind...It was created and inspired by my friend, Lisha, and uses the beautiful, handpainted yarn of one of one my dearest friends, Heather of Sereknity Yarn and Fiber. My best friend, Jackie, was kind enough to model my design and makes the scarf look so lovely. This scarf would make a wonderful gift for a loving friend, especially a fellow knitter!"

This pattern has been a work in progress (and I'm an impatient person!) for a while and I was able to finish it in February. With the help of my beautiful model, Jackie, I snapped up some terrific pictures last week and got the whole darn thing done and uploaded today. (Poor Jackie was wearing this warm cashmere scarf on the hottest day of the year...it was over 90 degrees and she wore it bravely for a good hour of photographing. Thanks, Jackie!!)

I've been having a bit of trouble adding it to my Ravelry pattern store and I'm not sure if because it's not a free pattern or because the pattern is just B-I-G (29 MB). Anyone have any tips?? (oh, and if it takes a while for the pdf to download for you once you pay for it, please be patient...it IS big and it will get to you...if not, make sure to email me right away and I can fix it for you.)

Anyway, I hope you like it and it's available to purchase here on my blog (see right sidebar)...and will soon be on Sereknity Yarn and Fiber and at the Yarn and Fiber Company, as well. (hopefully on Ravelry, too...once I figure it out!)



So.....what do you think??? (and, yes, it's as lusciously soft as it looks....even more so!)

20+MB is HUGE for any document... I would suggest you downsize the document itself (extend your margins to fit more on less pages, shrink photos some if they are very large, etc) and then save it as a LO-RES pdf, not a hi-res... that should take it down considerably in size... good luck!

PS - Its gorgeous!
