I was looking for a sort of Queen Anne's Lace pattern when I came across this pattern in my search.  Of course, I can't find the printed out pattern that I used right now, but it had instructions and a chart.  The chart was very helpful because I sort of got lost in the instructions.  I also believe there are little video clips in the instructions to help you.

I love this scarf!  I tried making it with a lighter weight yarn, but the leaves kept flopping...and the pattern gets lost easily with fluffy or variegated yarns.  The yarn I used is a washable worsted wool in a tonal colorway.  I can't wait for colder weather to wear it.

It is about six feet long so that it can cascade down the front to show off the lotus leaves.


Closeup to show the open lace pattern.


It went pretty fast but you do have to pay attention to where you are making the joins...goofed up several times until I got used to the pattern.

Thanks for looking!

That is beautiful and an unusual pattern.  I think it would be pretty with variegated yarn too, although trying to follow the pattern with that kind of yarn would probably be very difficult.

Really pretty. I've done a Queen Anne's lace scarf but I think I like this pattern better. It has a more interesting shape.

This is simply beautiful - elegant, feminine and delicate.  What beautiful work!  I wonder how it would look with some of the "sparkly" yarns, like Caron's Simply Soft Party yarns.  They are solid colors with just a little sparkle thrown in.  I might just have to try this one day... *adding it to the long list of "one day I'll get to them" projects*   Grin
