Shetland Shimmer Scarf




Say that three times fast. I finished this scarf at the end of July of this year. I knitted most of it when I was working at a job just east of Glamis. It was 120 degrees, and the most awful place I've ever been in my life. In any event, it's made with one skein of Shimmer in the color Turquoise Splendor from knit picks. It's the same pattern as the KSH scarf below. I like knitting this pattern because it seems to show off any yarn really well.

Here is the pattern:

Shetland Shell Lace Scarf

CO 67 sts
Set up row: K5, pm, K19, pm, K19, pm, K19, pm, K5. For all rows, slp 1st st as if to P, K4 to 1st marker. Follow pattern to last 5 sts and K.
Rows 1 and 2 knit. (Note: these are the pattern rows for the three sections of 19sts. Always slip the 1st st, K4 to last 5 sts and K.)
Row 3 *K1, yo twice, ssp, k13, p2tog, yo twice, k1; rep from * to end.
Row 4 *K2, P1, K15, P1, K2; rep from * to end.
Rows 5 and 6 Knit.
Row 7 *K1, [yo twice, ssp] twice, K11, [p2tog, yo twice] twice, K1; rep from * to end.
Row 8 *[K2, P1] twice, K13, [P1, K2] twice; rep from * to end.
Row 9 Knit.
Row 10 *K6, [yo twice, K1] 14 times, K5; rep from * to end.
Row 11 *K1, [yo twice, ssp] twice, yo twice, dropping extra yo’s of previous row, p15tog, yo twice, [p2tog, yo twice] twice, K1; rep from * to end.
Row 12 *K1, [P1, K1] 4 times, K1, [K1, P1] 4 times, K1; rep from * to end.
Cont as desired.

To finish knit 4 rows stocking stitch. Next row (facing rt side of work), k2tog, yo. Knit 4 rows stocking stitch. Use a blunt needle to sew the last row of stocking stitch to the first row. The end will fold over and create a picot edge.

NB: For Row 11 I use a J-shaped needle made for aran work. I put all 15 stitches on the needle and pull it taught to make sure all the stitches are even, then I put those back on the left needle making sure that all 15 made it back onto the needle, and I purl 15. I’ve made another version of this scarf and I was several repeats into it before I realized I’d missed one of the 15, and this large loop was hanging out of the work! I just sewed it into place, and I can’t even tell which shell I did that to now. Take the time to check that all 15 made it back onto the left needle before you purl.

I found this on Ravelry and I think it's my next lace scarf! This is a lovely pattern, I can't wait to see how it knits up in the red silk laceweight I just bought.

I'd love to attempt this lovely pattern with my lone skein of Kidsilk Haze (the last of its colorway in the sale bin). I saw you've made it in Kidsilk Haze before. Do you remember about how long the one skein scarf was?

This looks beautiful and I can't wait to make it! I am a little confused about row 11, though: are the 15 yo being held on the j needle and then returned to the mix? Are they the 15 that are purled together? Sorry if that's a silly question but I'm still an intermediate knitter.

Can you explain:
Set up row: K5, pm, K19, pm, K19, pm, K19, pm, K5. For all rows

my question is what is meant by pm??? place a marker??? What the meaning of "set up row"? I'm Indonesian and i dont understand what the meaning of set up row, it is same with 1st row?
please reply on my email: nate.msc3n@gmail.com i love your pattern simply amazed can't wait to try it. Thank you so much for sharing !!!

I assume you are from the Middle East, Palestine, maybe?
One of my daughters-in-law, Noor, is from Jordan. She came to the US as a child. My son has become very fluent in Arabic, which I think is terrific! Her family is wonderful.The rest of my family really loves the culture, too. As for teaching Noor to knit, she isn't really interested right now as both she and my son are extremely busy.

Hi
I have made this lovely scarf twice as gifts. I have been asked to use it to make a few snoods from a fleece at Little Hamlet Alpaca Rescue Centre. They will be used as adoption gifts for sponsors. Is this acceptable to you? Thanks Mandy
