Sampler Scarf

While I’m not a huge fan of needlework samplers, I do really enjoy trying a whole bunch of new-to-me stitches. And, the same can be said when it comes to my knitting.

Lace 102 Sampler, designed by Kate Atherly

The pattern is Lace 102 Sampler by Kate Atherly. (It is available on Ravelery for US$7.50.) I used a hand-dyed yarn from Quo Vadis Vegan Sock Yarn in colourway Bubbles (which is actually dyed Berroco Comfort Sock). I love the light blue with the tiny pink and yellow specks. (I had blocked the scarf, but I put it away in the closet and it got all crunched up. 🙁 )

Lily of the Valley Lace

It is made up of nine different patterns. My favourite, probably unsurprisingly, is the lily of the valley lace.

Twisted Infinity Lace

I also love these twisted infinities.

I enjoyed knitting this scarf a whole lot. I don’t generally struggle with simple lace patterns, so I didn’t have too much trouble with this. And, it also makes me feel a bit more confident that I could handle more complex lace (e.g. fancy stitches done both on the knit and purl side) with not too many problems. I know for sure that I will be on the lookout for more sampler patterns like this.
