Seiren

Central New Mexico rarely has “heavy coat weather,” but October-April is definitely “scarf season.” Temperatures rise and fall 30 degrees within a single day; mornings and evenings are chilly and afternoons warm-ish. A wool cardigan is enough to keep my arms and torso warm while driving to work and running errands, but my neck is always cold.

Enter Hiroku Fukatsu’s Seiren, an easy-to-memorize lace pattern done in fingering on size 4 needles (I used size 3).  A variant on the classic feather and fan, it’s reversible with a luscious, liquid drape.

Yarn is Tanis Fiber Arts red label in OOAK Laurel colorway.

I’ve typically shied away from fingering-weight projects because #windingandtangling, but now that I own a yarn winder I want to knit all the fingering-weight, drapey things, as soon as I get done making all the other things.
