Monaco!

Monday, May 11, 2009
I have a pattern in the new book edited by Kristi Porter: Knitting in the Sun. The pattern is for a lightweight scarf done in a reversible lace pattern using bamboo ribbon yarn. It's called "Monaco".

"Come summer, I envy Grace Kelly driving down the coast of Monaco with her hair held safe in a light scarf. When she reaches her destination she either leaves the scarf on her hair or lets it pool around her shoulders…

This lightweight, mesh scarf can hold back your hair or hold off an a/c induced chill. The bamboo yarn is feather light and noninsulating, making it a great choice for a summer scarf. With a simple lace stitch pattern, sideways construction, and pointed ends, this quick but interesting pattern will become a mainstay of any summer wardrobe – whether or not you’re a movie star!"
