Cashmere Scarf


My mom and I went to Stitches Midwest last year with our LYS. This laceweight cashmere yarn was something my mom bought (it came with a free pattern). She didn't enjoy knitting with such thin yarn on such slippery needles (addi's) so in frustration she threw it my way.

I cast on.....I didn't mind it at all. It was a nice break from sock knitting. And for her birthday this year I knew exactly what to give to her.


Marie, thanks for asking about the size. That would be nice to know. I called my mom and she'll measure it. The other pictures I had were not that great. I had dried it on bath towels...note to self...buy prettier bath towels for drying knit items. I wanted to get a picture of my mom wearing it and I did have a chance yesterday but spaced out. Ooo...mom called it is 12" x 55".

You did a great job! How large is the wrap? It' is hard to tell from the photo. I'm sure she will be delighted.

It is so pretty adn I'm sure she is enjoying it with our extended wintery weather this spring.

Love your cashmere scarf! Where did you find the pattern? I have recently learned how to knit beads into my projects, I'd love to try it with this pattern.

We (my mom and I) each bought a skein of cashmere from a vendor at Stitches Midwest last year. Each skein came with a free pattern.

The pattern is copyrighted. But the vendor's name is Belisa Cashmere, Bundanoon, NSW, Australia. The name of the pattern is Striped Lace Scarf.

Hey...they even have a website:
