I Heart Filet Lace
HeartStrings knitting pattern #H76
Knit this short ascot-like scarf and wear a heart on your heart. The knitted lace mesh simulates the look of filet lace crochet or darned netting, but is actually knitted. A boldly outlined heart motif at each of end of the scarf is set against the background of lace mesh.
Shown in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock color Cranberry

Sizing: 7" by 32" after tension blocking (17.78 cm by 81.28 cm); the scarf can easily be knitted longer by planning for more yarn and working additional rows of the filet lace mesh pattern between the two heart motifs
Yarn: 125 yards (114 m) fingering weight; choose a yarn that will hold a good blocking as the stitch pattern has a tendency to bias somewhat in its unblocked state
Suggested needles: US 6 (4 mm)
Gauge: 20 stitches x 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) after tension blocking
½ yard (44 cm) ribbon (photographed model uses Kreinik 3/8" trim in 003 Red)
Tapestry needle for finishing ends
Blocking board; rust-proof blocking wires/pins
Stitch instructions: charted and written
Construction: knitted flat in one piece from end to end; no seams to sew
Special Techniques: Knitted filet lace; knit through decrease (explained in pattern)
