Lacy Keyhole Scarf

In my quest to learn knitting I purchased several classes from Craftsy.com.

Up first, Knit Lab with Stephanie Japel.

The first project is the Lacy Keyhole Scarf.

Skills learned:

  • Longtail cast on
  • Knit stitch
  • Purl stitch
  • Yarn over knit one
  • Knit 2 together
  • Bind off
  • Seaming pieces together
  • Weaving in ends

I chose Lion Brands Wool-Ease in Blush Heather and 5mm straight bamboo needles.

This was a fun first project (I haven’t done more than knit, purl, knit front back).

I love the lacy look and liked learning how to bind off and cast on to make the keyhole (I could use more practice with this).

I’m not sure I would wear this much, but I think this would make a very cute scarf for Miss ME (with the plus that with the keyhole it would stay on her!).

I planned on doing the second project in the class, but it is not possible at this time.

Craftsy.com is going through a relaunch of the site and I can’t access any of my classes or patterns (sigh).

So, my next project is the Expression Fiber Arts Ravelry Group’s CAL.

The pattern is Expression Fiber Arts Pink Pearl Hat.

I have several hanks of yarn from the site, but I have had Shimmering Cashmere (color way: Space Nebula) languishing for months.

I simply could not find a project I wanted to use for this yarn (its too thin for any project I wanted to do).

My plan is to use both this yarn and the remainder of the Blush Heather Wool-Ease to make the hat.

I’ll finally use this yarn and not waste the Wool-Ease, a win-win!

    The scarf is really pretty and I can totally see a little girl wearing this and looking adorable. The yarn color is so pretty and soft. And I want you to know as a new knitter I am totally impressed. I hope you get access to your Craftsy videos soon.
