The Pattern is Free, the Yarn is on Sale - And You can Win a Prize!

The Light Flurries Scarf
Today a massive snow storm is bearing down on the Midwest.  The snow is piling up inch by inch.  This storm is certainly NOT light flurries, but what a great time to mention "Light Flurries," my new FREE scarf pattern published by Classic Elite!

The Light Flurries scarf is soft, drapey and feminine.  The pattern features "nupps" or "bobbles," which add depth to the lace work.  The scarf is started with a provisional cast-on and worked from the center out, which allows for the pretty scalloped edge.  Never done a provisional cast-on?  No problem, Classic Elite has great written instructions with photos, and Michelle Hunter has a video tutorial

The Light Flurries scarf is knit with Classic Elite's soft Vail yarn.  Vail is a 70% Baby Alpaca and 30% Bamboo Viscose blend in natural, undyed colors. The bamboo gives it a bit of luster and drape, the alpaca provides the buttery soft feel, and the subdued natural colors make the lace work stand out.  You will need two skeins (472 yards) of Vail for the Light Flurries Scarf.  We have seven natural colors in stock - and they are all on sale at 20% off!

The Light Flurries Scarf's gorgeous scalloped edge.
You will need a pair of Size US 4 needles ... you can use either straights or circular needles. I prefer the addi Turbo 24” circulars (very fast!). You will also need a Size “F”crochet hook for the provisional cast-on.

You can post your pictures, share your thoughts, and ask questions about my “Light Flurries Scarf” pattern in my FiberWild Ravelry Group!

Bonus:  Do you like prizes?  Scout wants to hear your opinion!  Everyone who comments on this blog post before Thursday, February 28th at 5 pm (Galena, Illinois time) has a chance to win two skeins of Vail in Parchment.  Comment on anything:  What do you think about the Light Flurries scarf?  How long have you been knitting?  What are your favorite needles?  Do you prefer cats or dogs?  (You already know Scout's opinion on that one!)

Scout the Cat

Cats, of course - ! The lace scarf is lovely and it would be amazing to win the yarn, as well.

Nice to know that Scout is more than a pretty face! Of course, cats are my favorite...but I will admit to having loved my share of canine creatures, too! (Note to Scout: this snow is really coming down in the Q-C, so make sure your humans stay safe!!!)

How can anyone not like cats? Look at how cute Scout is, he looks a little like my Oliver :)

P.S. I love the scarf pattern!

I have had cats my whole life, though as a small child my family had its share of dogs too. I really like the new Light Flurries Scarf pattern. It reminds me of Lily of the Valley stole, which I also adore. I hope to make the pattern soon, and when I do I'll use my ChiaGoo circs. I started out with Addi's, but ChiaGoo's are just a nice at half the price. Oohh, I'm a poet.

Still haven't started the swirl coat, but the scarf pattern is wonderful too. Do you sell time?
