FD-59 Anjou

Patterson: "It was love at first sight. I fell hard for the delicate pear and trellis stitch. It caught at my heart strings. The problem was that everyone was using this same stitch for something back then. I felt that I needed to come up with a new use for it. Then this lovely pale green yarn arrived on my doorstep. Suddenly I knew. The pairing was perfect (cough). Instead of staggering the pears in an all-over pattern, I separated them so they prance down either side of the scarf, then rejoin each other at the far end. The name, what about the name, you ask? Well, I named it for one of my favorite pears, of course, the anjou!

"Scarf is worked from a five-stitch cast on, which is quickly increased to the full width. When the second end nears, the number of stitches decreases back down to five, and then is bound off. Knit with sock yarn, this scarf is much easier to knit than it seems. All lace work is done on the right side. Stitch instructions are both written and charted." (Take a really long time to look at all the pictures... this is a sonnet in yarn, a poem to wear around your shoulders-- Ed.)
