FO: Cosimo Scarf in Simonetta yarn

Yet another FO to tell you about… This time it is the Cosimo scarf, knitted in Louisa Harding’s Simonetta yarn.

The Cosimo scarf pattern is a free pattern which you can download as a PDF here.  The instructions give the yarn requirements to knit the scarf in either Louisa Harding’s Simonetta, Grace Handbeaded or Nerissa.  I was tempted to do it in Grace Hand Beaded, but thought that the Simonetta would make the scarf feel more floaty and delicate and it only took 1 ball.

I don’t knit a lot of lace patterns, and at first I had to really concentrate on what I was doing, to make sure that I didn’t wrong. Trying to rip back lace knitting is not fun. I get confused with the yarn overs etc! But once I got into it, the 16 row pattern repeat became quite easy.

And look.. I even wet blocked it properly with blocking wires and my new blocking mat (which I will tell you about in another post)! Well you have to with lace knitting, don’t you.
