  • Fyberspates Vivacious DK yarn


    This DK yarn from Fyberspates is something special. It is 100% superwash merino wool from Peru (no mulesing!) and is variegated. The dyeing process is twofold making each skein unique. If you want to use more than one in a project just alternate the skeins.

    One skein will easily make a scarf and the feel and drape is superb. At The Lace Knittery we have used it in a variety of projects and the colour variations does not distract from any surface design.

    Each skein is 115g/230m

A beautiful book.

  • The Lace Knittery Ebbtide Mobius Scarf PDF Knitting Pattern


    This is the mobius version of The Lace Knittery Ebbtide Scarf. It was inspired by the shoreline and lochs of the west coast of Scotland. The central lace pattern echoes sand on an ebbing tide and is knitted straight. It is joined and the ruffle seaweed edging is picked up at the end. This allows you to leave it without or not.

    It is knitted in lace weight yarn but the pattern is adaptable up to DK weight yarn. It takes 420m yarn and the yarn in the photo is a hand painted kid mohair and silk from The Lace Knittery.

  • The Lace Knittery Ebbtide Straight Scarf PDF knitting pattern


    This The Lace Knittery pattern was inspired by a trip to Argyl in the west of Scotland. I spent an enjoyable and vast number of hours just watching the tide and walking along the strand line of Loch Fyne and wandering around the wooded shores of Loch Awe.

    The scarf has a main lace pattern and the ruffled edge is picked up at the end. This gives you the opportunity to add it or not. It is knitted in lace weight yarn but as always with The Lace Knittery patterns I like them to be adaptable so it can be knitted in up to DK weight yarns using the same needle size and instructions.

    The yarn in the photo is kid mohair and silk and is hand painted by The Lace Knittery.

  • The Lace Knittery Exmoor Snuggle PDF Knitting Pattern

Wear front or back it suits everybody and is a nice easy knit.

    It requires 400m of aran weight yarn.

  • The Lace Knittery Frosted Leaf Shawl PDF Knitting Pattern


    The Inspiration for The Lace Knittery Frosted Leaf Shawl came from a New Year’s Day walk. It was frosty and then we reached the lovely West Bay. The sea was crashing on shore but it was bright sparkling sunshine.

    It is a triangular shawl with a picot edge. It is knitted from the lower edge. This allows the knitter to decide the finished size from scarf to enormous wrap. It requires 800m of lace weight yarn but can also be knitted in DK weight yarn using the same needle size and instructions.

    The yarn in the photo is a merino, silk and sparkle lace weight, hand painted in Stormy Sea colour way and available from The Lace knittery.
