Knitting Linh’s Ivy Scarf… free patterns

I’ve never knit lacy … not that I haven’t tried… It seems that I get about 20 rows in and mess something up and have no earthly idea how to backtrack to fix it… So it gets frogged back to nothing and that’s the end of that.  So at the risk of jinxing my scarf… I’m going to post this pic and tell you where to find the pattern.

I have about 200 yds. (more or less) of this hand spun mixed wool that I spun a while back.  When I saw the pattern for this, I decided that is what that blue yarn wants to be.  It’s a 10 row repeat…which almost made me change my mind…lol  But with the help of a trusty paper clip and one of my own business cards, I have been able to actually keep my place in the patterns and stay on track.  I…am…loving…this….!!

This pattern is called “Linh’s Ivey”  and is found on the blog Crafty Diversions.  Anne has several other free patterns also…

Have a look…

    Try putting in a lifeline at the beginning of each repeat, its essentially a stop line that holds the stitches if you have to rip it back to deal with mistakes. I’ve never done it but often wish I had!

    You are amazing! I had never heard of a lifeline, so I did a search. This is so “common sense” I feel embarassed not to have thought of it! lol
