Free Pattern: Lace Scarf from Feminine Knits

Jun 12, 2009

I'm taking several summer trips in the near future, and of course, like any knitter, I'm planning what projects to take with me. It may sound daft, but my favorite airplane knitting is lace knitting. Really! I make sure I have a paper copy of the chart in a nice plastic sleeve, and I pin or clip that to the headrest of the seat in front of me. My project (always on circulars for travel), yarn, a small tin of markers, and some highlighter tape to mark my place on the chart all go into a small drawstring bag. I thread the seatbelt through the loop of the drawstring so the bag won't "go a-visiting" without permission, buckle up, and voila! Hours of losing myself in my knitting, completely oblivious to the snores of the man next to me or the nattering of the lovely lady behind me. Add an audiobook and it's almost as if the vacation starts early!

But a large lace shawl can be unwieldy on a trip--too many charts, and too much knitting to wrangle in a small airplane seat. So I'm always on the lookout for great lace scarf patterns, particularly those that use a single skein of a precious yarn that's been sitting in my stash just waiting for the right project to show it off.

This lace scarf from Interweave's book Feminine Knits fits the bill perfectly--it's light and airy in your lap, it takes only one skein of a gorgeous yarn (plus a second if you choose to add the elegant crocheted edging), and the chart is tiny and easy enough to take anywhere. Oh, and the pattern for the Lace Scarf is this week's free pattern from Knitting Daily. What could be better for a summer travel treat?

I START THIS LACE SCARF AND QUIT BECAUSE I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE CHART.  I THINK IT HAS AN ERROR ON ROW 9.

I FIND THE PROJECT IN MY CLOSET AND REALLY WANT TO TRY AGAIN.

NEED SOME HELP HERE!!! THANKS.

For yarn alternatives, try Louet Euroflax (for edging) and Rowan Kidsilk Haze (for body).  This is but one possible substitution.

This is not a comment, but a question. Where can I find the yarn used in the Lace Scarf by Lene Holme Samsoe from Interweave Knits, Summer 2009?

Thank You Mary Murphy, email pmurphy353@aol.com.

Respond to likeable911- I have never had problems with knitting needles. Now I only fly 3 to 4 times per year, but it has never been a problem. In fact, one year ago had #4 metal dpns and sailed through security.

I am increasingly frustrated at trying to access these patterns to download. I keep getting errors that say the system is down or there's a problem with the server. And why do we have to go through 3 levels of login to get the free patterns?!

I would also like to know how you got knitting needles through security, I got that answer from 2 people over the phone and in the written rules on the internet. Do you use wooden needles? I would love to crochet in the airport but dont want my hooks confescated!!

IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF YOU OBTAINED PERMISSION FROM THE AUTHOR TO MAKE THEIR YARN SUBSTITUTION CHART (PAGE 126 OF THE BOOK) AVAILABLE FOR AMERICAN KNITTERS. JACKIE

I use to crochet lace, but prefer to knit now. I also like immediate gratification, so this is a perfect project for beginning to knit lace. Thank you for this pattern.

This is perfect for the Qiviut I picked up in Fairbanks a few years ago. Yikes, in 2004!

How in the world did you ever get past the security check with knitting needles?! I couldn't even get a large crochet hook through!

Thank you so much, Sandi. The scarf is great plus I just finished a lace shawl and now want to add some edging to make it sturdier. This looks just right. Celesta

A good idea. I recently posted in Forums under Your FAVorite Project Past or Present? a comment on adding a little lace work above the band of a hat I had just made. A little lace adds interest to any number of my favorite projects and smaller ones can be taken with me wherever I go.
