Link-a-Dink-a-Doo

Just some quick links today to three patterns—two scarves and a shawl. The scarves are both lace, complex enough to be interesting, but not enough to frustrate. The shawl is simple, but striking.

The Anya Scarf by Panda Bonzai features a medallion pattern surrounded by lace. By multiplying the number of medallions or changing their spacing, one could work up all sorts of lovely variations on this piece.

Travelling Roses by To Knit Is Divine features a striking all-over lace pattern.

The Nature Shawl from Die WollLust uses an easy-to-memorize stitch pattern that would look great in self-striping or space-dyed yarns like Noro. If you’re looking for “Meeting Knitting,” this will serve you well. (Note that you may want to replace all the pairs of K2tog with one K2tog followed by one SSK—or vice-versa—for symmetry’s sake.)

    Oooh, eerr! Two of your patterns I’ve come across recently. But the Anja scarf is a newbie for me, and isn’t it lovely!

    Thank you! I have saved Traveling Roses for some new yarn (cobweb weight?) coming from the sale at Knitpicks.
