Simple Lace Scarf

Simple Lace Scarf
AKA: Moira Littlelace
Yarn: Louet Gems Pearl 100% Wool Fingering Weight
approximately 700 yards
Needles: US 5's
I started with straights and switched to circulars.
Finished Measurements:
10.5" by 92"
*K2, YO, K2tog, K2, P2*, repeat from * to * for desired width,
end with K2, YO, K2tog.
Repeat this row for desired length.
What would I do different?
Use a laceweight yarn. The fingering is a bit heavy.
Make it shorter. 72" to 80" would be better.

Pat - I like the scarf - it looks wonderful. I've been looking for an easy lace like pattern for the lace weight that I bought this spring - I may give this a try!!
Thanks for sharing.
AHH - college apartment hunting - we too are in that mode. Molly is going back to UofO in September. I'm glad she'll be on her own - but a little nervous too!!

Exquisite scarf! Lovely model, too. If I were going to make changes, I would use the same size yarn, but go for bigger needles. In fact, it looks so pretty, I may actully have to try some lace. Pat, you temptress, you make it look easy! I'll regret this, I know I will. . .

Ahh what a pretty shawl and beautiful girl. I'm sure the yarn you selected is nice and drapey yet adds just the touch of warmth needed for a cool evening if we don't soon collide with the sun and fall winter and spring do actually return. Love the color too! :)

Wow, that is just BEAUTIFUL. I don't think the fingering weight looks to heavy at all -- in fact, I think I would opt for fingering weight if I were to do this pattern based on those lovely pictures alone.

How many did you cast on? I'm thinking this would be a great showcase for my first laceweight handspun.
