Introducing Homewood, a lightweight lace scarf, perfect for warm spring or summer days or evenings. This is the perfect scarf to add just a tiny bit of warmth in a cool breeze or chilly office, while still maintaining that warm weather look.
This scarf comes in two versions–a circular version for effortless style, or a more traditional and slightly wider/longer straight version. The circular version uses about one skein of most fingering weight yarns, while the straight version uses two skeins.
I knit the blue version of this scarf for my grandmother Helen, who just turned 90 this year. Helen has always been a feisty woman, full of attitude, and remains so to this day. She always looks feminine and elegant though, and I knew this style of scarf would fit beautifully into her summer wardrobe.
Showing a bit of that attitude!
The name for this pattern comes from the town where my grandparents lived for most of my teenage/adult life. I have many fond memories of visiting with my extended family for holiday dinners or random gatherings there, and associate it strongly with my grandmother.
