This lovely scarf, called Saroyan, is designed by Liz Abinante of feministy.com. After receiving a ton of requests for this, I’m happy to offer this video tutorial on Liz’s design. (Note – feministy.com appears to be down this morning, and I’ve let Liz know. Please check her website again later. The free pattern is still available via the Ravelry link below!)
This pattern is a FREE RAVELRY DOWNLOAD. The video below will walk you through the trickier parts of the lace.
Size: any length you like – the recommended yarn and gauge will give you about a six-foot long scarf
Needles: Size 10 US (6.0mm), circulars or straights
Yarn: about 350-400 yards of worsted (10 ply) yarn. For the green scarf, I used 2 hanks of Madeline Tosh Tosh Vintage in color “Jade”. For the blue scarf, Liz used Femme Fatale Fibers Venus Worsted
Additional Materials: a row counter is a good idea, you’ll also need a tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Gauge: 4 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
