L'esprit de l'escalier

On Sale
Added to cart
L’esprit is a scarf that is knitted sideways – mainly in garter stitch with an easy lace pattern. It is designed to be knitted with one skein of Wollmeise Pure (or 150 grams of another fingering weight yarn). 

I wanted something simple to show off the beautiful colors of this yarn, but not too boring to knit, so I included some lacy rectangles. The lower edge forms a staircase pattern - hence the name „L’Esprit de l’escalier“ (or staircase wit).

To knit this scarf, you need to know the following techniques:
  • Garter stitch
  • Yarn Over
  • K2tog
  • Knitted Cast-On
Blocked the finished scarf measures about 165 cm from side to side. At its widest point (in the middle) it measures about 39 cm in width.
