SweaterBabe.com's eBook collection of Gossamer Lace knitting patterns includes 4 gorgeous lace shawl and scarf patterns knit up in a deliciously soft and luxe kid mohair/silk blend yarn.
Each of the 4 designs features different lace stitches. Knit them all for the ultimate accessory collection that will pretty up many outfits for years to come.
(top row, left to right)
First is the #177 Annabelle Striped Stole/Scarf. This ultra-feminine stole, which easily doubles as a generous scarf, features lovely, lacy, undulating stripes that run the length of the stole/scarf. Delicate fringe adds a dramatic flourish. Smaller Scarf size (which only requires 2 balls of yarn!) instructions included as well.
Next is the #154 Gossamer One-Ball Lace Scarf. When a heavy scarf just won't do, grab this gossamer-weight lace scarf instead! An open lace panel with gentle peaks along one long edge is contrasted with a bit of garter stitch for lots of textural interest. A fairly quick knit that uses up only one ball of yarn.

Third is the #151 Samantha Featherweight Lace Shawl. Whether you choose to wear this as a lace shawl or scarf, you will love this wisp of an accessory! The mohair and silk lace weight yarn is supremely soft to knit with and a pleasure to wear against the skin.
Fourth is the #172 Cloudy Skies Diaphanous Scarf. Every girl should have at least one beautiful, diaphanous scarf in her closet. And if it's one that she's knit herself and can do double duty as a shawl, then all the better!
