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