The Gauzy Gathers Scarf - free pattern, and giveaway!

It is fine weather for ducks here today - earlier, it hailed so hard that the ground appeared to be covered in snow!

The weekend promises more of the same, so why not stay inside, make a nice cup of tea, and knit up this free, wonderful scarf pattern I have created? It only takes one ball of Kidsilk Haze, and makes a perfect gift.

I don't knit so don't put me down for the giveaway, but I wanted to tell how much I like the scarf.

what a cute scarf. Reminds me of some sort of plant...

What a delicate scarf and its fragility makes me think of the plant called a fern. I do hope that I don't sound cheezy since that's what the wool is called.

Such a lovely scarf and I can't believe it only took one ball to make!

Beautiful pattern - and the yarn is a stunning colour.

Well done for seaming up the red dress, by the way. I find it so hard to get around to seaming things (almost as much as darning), so I have all sorts of almost-finished projects lurking around the house.
