I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg!

"Enconium" A lace scarf

Enconium Arco Iris (3)
This pattern has a chart and written instructions. I got inspired after reading the book by Nancy Bush, Knitted Lace of Estonia with DVD: Techniques, Patterns, and Traditions. You get to travel to Estonia and learn how this lace scarves and shawls are made, in the modern times and in the more traditional way.  After studying this subject for a while I got inspired to create my own  Estonian style lace scarf and thus, may I present you "Enconium" a Lace Scarf. This pattern was designed with Malabrigo Arroyo in mind. It uses 90 grams of one skein. It is a very versatile scarf, simple, elegant and a fast knit.  The whole scarf is made out of 27 repetitions of the main pattern, and it has a garter stitch border.  It is done flat, one piece and it took less than 100 grams.  I was able to use a different yarn  and different size needles and it works perfectly fine.  I hope you enjoy making it as well , it is for sale  at $6.00 .
