First off, shout out to Butte County Fiber Farm for this beautiful, locally-sourced yarn. It was my first skein of yarn that was produced locally and I loved working with it. So, so beautiful!
After buying it, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it. I knew that I wanted to make a lace pattern with it and make it in to some sort of scarf. I decided to go with the English Mesh Lace Stitch.
I highly recommend this stitch if you aren’t super comfortable with lace patterns, like me. I have been knitting for as long as I can remember and lace is the one thing that I tend to mess up, often ending up with one less stitch than I should have. This did not happen with the English Mesh Lace stitch.
Looking back, I think this yarn was a bit to thick to use for a delicate lace pattern since you can’t see a lot of the little detail, but I am still happy with the result.
Then I had to weave in the strings. It was quite long since I wanted to use as much of the skein as possible. So, it became an infinity scarf.
Even though you can’t really see the lace, I love the texture that this pattern created with this yarn.
It creates two totally different feels depending on if it’s double wrapped or single wrapped. Both look great and now I have a great English Mesh Lace Infinity Scarf.
