Introducing: Diverge, A Chunky Lace Scarflette with Built-in Buttonholes

3:00:00 PM


As I was looking through my stash I found a ball of Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes yarn in the color Dungaree Blue. It had been in my stash for at least a couple of years. Every now and again I'd pick it up and try to make something with it but I always ran out of yarn before I could finish the project. I'd frog it and back the ball went into the stash. I had been working with thin Fingering and Sock weight yarns for a while and missed knitting with chunkier ones so I picked the ball up again. This time I thought why not make a scarf or scarflette out of it. And so Diverge was born.

It features a repeating chevron or arrow lace design and reminds me of leaves branching off from a center point, hence the name. Buttons are attached in the last step (I just had to use a pair of skull and crossbone ones that I'd been saving for a while) and any of the design’s eyelets can be used as buttonholes allowing you to wear the piece a variety of different ways.

It's a great quick-knit project especially if you're making it from a Chunky or Bulky weight yarn. Last minute holiday gifts anyone?

You can download the pattern here.
