Four Seasons Scarves
The Four Seasons Scarves are lace knitting interpretations of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
Spring celebrates the renewal of life with fern fronds, small flower buds and a snail shell edging.
Summer showcases the exuberance of the season with bold flower motifs and a leafy edging.
Autumn is represented by falling beech leaves and a picot edging suggesting small seeds.
Winter sparkles with delicate snowflakes and an icy alpine edging.
All scarves are begun by knitting a lace edging from which stitches are picked up to work the main rectangular body. Winter is finished by knitting another lace edging onto the live stitches of the body. Spring, Summer and Autumn are each worked as two identical halves and joined in the centre with Russian Grafting. These are combination stocking stitch and garter stitch scarves. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Intermediate lace knitters.
