Purple Rain Lacy Scarf

Purple Rain Lacy Scarf  
In August (2017) I posted a free pattern for a purple hat for Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS). I used a purple part of Lion Brand yan for Shawls. However, I still had about 3/4 of the ball left over, and I wanted to use it up. Instead of a shawl, I decided to knit a scarf. I am a very busy person, and I was hoping to find an easy pattern that will look very rich. I looked through my books and found a chart I thought it could work. Believe it or not, this project turned out great - exactly what I wanted.
The yarn has two different fibers - cotton and acrylic. Cotton is making this scarf strong, and acrylic is making the yarn very soft - when I touch it, it feels plush against my fingers. Of course, I made videos for right-handed knitters and for left-handed knitters, too.


Materials (if you shop on-line via my affiliated links below, I would get few pennies, which would help to fund my future projects TXS):

Yarn: the purple part of Lion Brand; Shawl in a Ball; color: Mindful Mauve; 58% cotton/39% acrylic; 3 % other fiber; 5.3 oz/150 g; 518 yd/473 m; Note: I made 2 hats from the purple part of this yarn, which is surprisingly soft to the touch - see the link about the hats above
