Inspired by late-winter fields at the Brookfield Farm in Amherst, Massachusetts, this wide, rectangular lace scarf is part of the My Place project at KDD (Kate Davies Designs). An essay about my inspiration and design process for Winter’s End will appear on the KDD blog on March 24, 2021.
Winter’s End is worked flat, from one end to the other, in fingering weight yarn. After blocking, fringe is added. The pattern provides step-by-step instructions for adding fringe with a crochet hook.
The lace stitch patterns are provided both in written, line-by-line, format and in a chart.
