I’m having to repost this because the link on Ravelry for this isn’t working and I have to put in a new link. Hope you will enjoy revisiting this scarf that was originally posted on July 5th 2008.
Ok, here is the little lace scarf I knit out of the red white and blue hand spun skein, shown on the right. I used Cats Paw, a Shetland lace pattern, and as you can see I staggered the design so that it was not straight across from each other but rather looks like a cat walked on the scarf :). Since I designed where the pattern would go, I include the pattern below. It is free to use for your own use. Please do not give this pattern out to others, if someone would like this pattern, please direct them to my blog. :) It was a very quick and easy pattern to knit, and makes a great long skinny scarf. Enjoy.
