Racing Raindrops Scarf [Churchmouse Classics]
The beauty of Churchmouse knitting patterns is they can be adapted to suit the yarn you want to knit with. Racing Raindrops is ideal to use for a lace weight yarn or heavier fingering weight to create an easy to wear scarf. Incorporate beads to add that little sparkle!
We love SweetGeorgia Cashsilk Lace for the lace weight version, one skein is enough.Size: approx. 76"/193cm across long straight edge; approx. 10 (18)"/25 (46)cm deep at the centre, after blocking. Note: The only change in size is the back depth.
Yarn: smaller scarf: approx. 437 yds/400m of lace-weight yarn. larger scarf: approx. 775 yds/708m of fingering-weight yarn. Note: Both lace-weight and fingering-weight yarns are knit to the same gauge.
Knitting needles: 3.5mm / US 4, or size to obtain gauge.
Notions: approx. 130 size 6 glass beads (this allows for a few extras), 0.9mm (US 13/14) steel crochet hook for placing beads, 1 locking stitch marker, darning needle to finish.
Gauge: approx. 22 sts = 4"/10cm in texture pattern, before blocking. Approx. 28 sts = 4"/10cm in texture pattern, after blocking. Note: As you block texture ridges open, your stitch gauge will draw in.
