L'Esprit de l'escalier

L’esprit is a scarf that is knitted sideways – mainly in garter stitch with an easy lace pattern. It is designed to be knitted with one skein of Wollmeise Pure (or 150 grams of another fingering weight yarn). 

I wanted something simple to show off the beautiful colors of this yarn, but not too boring to knit, so I included some lacy rectangles. The lower edge forms a staircase pattern - hence the name „L’Esprit de l’escalier“ (or staircase wit).

To knit this scarf, you need to know the following techniques:

- Garter stitch

- Yarn Over

- K2tog

- Knitted Cast-On

Blocked the finished scarf measures about 165 cm from side to side. At its widest point (in the middle) it measures about 39 cm in width.

  • You'll get a four page knitting pattern that contains the written row-by-row pattern, a chart of the lace pattern and a schematic of the construction.
