This is a very open, lacy scarf that I designed to work with self-striping yarns that have a long color repeat, such as the beautiful hand-painted yarns from String Theory Colorworks. It is an beginner-intermediate pattern, but only uses a 4 row repeat so would be within reach for a patient advanced beginner. The pattern uses chains, single crochets, & double crochets. One 100 gram skein of sock yarn will make a scarf 8″ long by 8 feet long (or longer if desired) after blocking (I used 350 yards with a pre-blocking gauge of 2 pattern repeats of the lace = 4 inches & my finished scarf is about 9 feet long).
I named this scarf for my mother, who uses the nickname â€œlovely Lisaâ€. When I started self-publishing I knew I had to name something for her, and this is it. Thanks, Mom!
