Fíorghrá my newest pattern was released this week. Fíorghrá means “true love” in Irish and it is a lace beaded scarf of hearts made up from tear drop shapes. Starting from a provisional crochet cast on one side is worked then stitches are picked up and the other side is knit. A lace beaded scallops finish off the ends to give a feminine romantic look to the scarf. I used one skein of yarn for the sample but details are given on the pattern on how to adapt the scarf. Pattern can be purchased from my Ravelry store here and feel free to drop in and join in the chat in my group for this pattern here, I’d love to hear if your knitting this pattern and what yarn you’re using and of course I’d love to see the finished items.
Starting this Thursday 19th November I will taking part in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long. This is a huge gift a long being run from 19th Nov to the 31st Dec with lots of games and prizes and it is a great way to support Indie Designers while getting a lot of your gift knitting done.
