By knitting this scarf from one long edge to the other, the colors arrange themselves lengthwise in strokes of color along the length of the scarf. The eyelet stripe sections which frame and divide the cat's cradle areas further emphasize the length-wise color placement. Pattern includes a mini-tutorial on finishing and blocking lace.
This scarf can be knitted in any lace or light fingering weight yarn of your choice. Allow 450 yards of yarn for blocked measurements of 6 " by 70". 5 stitches/inch, size US 5 /3.75 mm needles suggested. Written pattern instructions.
