Lead or Follow Lace Scarf
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A52
The fluid design of the Lead or Follow Lace Scarf is a wonderful study in the behavior of lace knitting when yarn overs are placed in various positions relative to the compensating decrease. This scarf is true knitted lace; i.e. lace hole patterning is knit on every row.

I finally have a finished lace project to post! I finished this scarf last week, and loved the pattern (thanks Jackie!). I have pictures
posted on my blog if anybody wants to check it out. Thanks!
I have to say, that scarf is probably the thing that I'm most proud of knitting. I started it before I could figure out that lace might be "hard", and your well-written pattern made it a breeze. I have several other of your scarf patterns that I am now anxious to try!
Tracy Trasky, the Alaskan Knitter, writes ...
I bought the pattern to your lead or follow lace scarf because it is the most beautiful lace pattern I've ever seen. I worked it in Manos del Uruguay color #113 (Carribe) and it became a GORGEOUS scarf. Your scarf/shawl patterns are amazing and very well charted -- please develop some more!!!!
