I knocked this scarf up last year as a test for suitability for beginning lace knitters taking part in the All Shawl Together KAL. It made a useful stash buster

Very repetitive and mindless drop stitch pattern but worth the perseverance for a very wearable accessory. It offers so much warmth for so little weight

Flutter Scarf by Mimknits in Jaggerspun Zephyr.

This was a truly enjoyable knit. I loved everything about it. The yarn was a RAK gift and I was so pleased to be able to see and handle this yarn.

Most of the scarf was knit on ferry trips to and from Kirkwall. The pattern is a very simple 4 row repeat, easily memorised. The rhythm of the repeats, and the shortness of them, makes this one high on the “just one more” scale, and it is therefore very quickly finished. Just enough pattern to keep me alert, but simple enough to allow a social context. The ruffled ends required slightly more concentration, so I knit those at home.
