Three Sisters Scarves # One

In preparation of my upcoming trip I'm knitting some gifts. This week I'll share with you the "Three Sisters Scarves" and as it must be, I start with # One. All three of them are easy lace pattern, made with one skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk. I had several single skeins in my stash and thought now's the time to use them. The first one is knit with a simple, but elegant triangle lace pattern. The color (which is not quite right in the above photo) reminds me of old gold jewelry. And if you know Handmaiden Sea Silk, you know what I mean. It has a wonderful sheen to it. (this picture shows the color better)

(least likeness of actual color)


pattern: my own

yarn: Handmaiden sea silk, 70% silk, 30% sea cell

needles: 3.25mm

size after blocking: 9" x 56" + fringes (I had some left over yarn, I might have gotten another repeat out of it)



For your pleasure, I've written down the pattern. I hope you'll enjoy it!

Errata:
the first 2 stitches and the last 2 stitches of this pattern ARE charted

As it happens, I just bought a skein of that yarn in a deep lavender/blue color way. Now I know what I'll do with it. Thanks a bunch.

Thanks for the pattern and it's very nice. Sometimes the simple patterns come out the best. Can't wait to see the next ones and what a great way to use up single skeins.

Pretty! I have three skeins of that yarn and I just don't know what to do with it. Maybe I should make a scarf!

Liebe Monika,
der Schal ist wunderwunderschön. Er sieht wirklich aus wie fließendes Gold und mir gefallen die Fransen so toll. Die Anleitung habe ich gleich ausgedruckt. Vielen Dank, dass Du sie mit uns teilst.
Über dieses Geschenk wird sich aber jemand ganz doll freuen.
Liebe Grüße
Susanne

I tried last night to download the pattern, but the words showed up as dots & symbols and it was all very, very small.

Is there anyway you can email me the pattern? I'd be eternally grateful.

Liebe Grüße, Juli
