Hello my Fiber friends! :D I am excited and exhausted while telling my self to take pictures of this new lace scarf . I could put the pictures along with the free pattern. It was exciting cause I got a chance to play in the snow (see how cozy my knits were) before conquering the truck load of snow off the drive way. Instead of rewarding myself with a nice cup of hot chocolate, I grabbed a ice cream cone. I know, I know but no matter how much you tell me this is crazy. I love my ice cream. I mean don’t get me wrong, I will sit down with a nice hot cup of coco, but there is those days I grab a bowl (yes not cup) of ice cream. The exhausting part, besides shoveling snow. Is the last minute Christmas shopping and Gift knitting. Phew!!! I am almost finished. I hope you like the pattern! I will be posting more (ok tons more) patterns in the future. So, keep on checking. I will be having crochet, knit and felt projects. I am excited to say I have a Amigurumi waiting to meet you guys. I will also post the pattern soon. ^__^ If you have any questions about this pattern please feel free to email me and if your on Ravelry check me out: fiber-fashionista http://www.ravelry.com/people/fiber-fashionista I want to see your finished projects so, send me your user name on Ravelry, if not Ravelry send a finished picture.

  1. I am trying to make sense of the crochet instructions for the edging. I am a long time crocheter but I don't understand your written instructions from Row 2 on. Can you assist?

  2. I used to knit about 35 years ago and have just started it up again. I need to brush up because the scarves I'm making only use the knit stitch. When you have RS and .WS in the pattern is that taking the place of saying knit and pull or k and p or what. I feel kind of dumb not understanding but I really live the pattern. Thank you for sharing.I would appreciate your time to answer these questions. Thanks. Char
