My inspiration for Golden Dreams scarf

Today’s post is about inspiration behind my latest pattern release – Golden dreams scarf.

Some time ago I bought some absolutely gorgeous yarn from Fyberspates.co.uk, which is an independent dyer from Oxfordshire. The yarn I bought is appropriately called Scrumptious, it is a blend of merino wool and silk and is soft and lustrous. The thing I loved most about this yarn was its colour – golden yellow.

Next step was to find some beautiful lace stitch to showcase this beautiful yarn. I love to work with lace stitches and whenever I can I try to improvise some new stitch combinations, something new that one can’t find in any stitch dictionary.

I am always on the look for inspiration and this time inspiration came to me on the beach in Italy. There I was, lying on a sunbed, browsing through Italian Vogue, when I saw a beautiful photo of golden chains. I absolutely loved beautiful curved and slightly tilted lines on the photo. Straight away I thought about interpreting this image in lace.

So some swatching later here is the result. I think it worked quite well.
