Bellflower Mystery Scarf KAL -- after clue #6

This section is an Orenburg Lace pattern called Fish Eyes.  I love the architecture of this type of lace.  This lace uses a garter stitch ground united with yo-k2tog’s in a way that produces a highly textured fabric; a fabric with thermal qualitites.  The other thing that intrigues me about this lace is that just looking at it I would not be able to guess at its construction…it is a bit of a puzzle.  I chose this particular stitch for a transition I had in mind for the scarf, and wound up finding an even better transition instead…but that is for the next, and final, clue.  If you managed to survive those three rows of clue four, and you have hung in with me, I thank you for your patience.  Here is my thank you to you lovely knitters:

Row 57:  (k1, p1, k1), *(k2, yo, k2tog)* X 6, k1, (k1, p1, k1).

Row 58:  (k1, p1, k1), k1, *(k2, yo, k2tog)* X 6, (k1, p1, k1).

Row 59:  (k1, p1, k1), *(k2, yo, k2tog)* X 6, k1, (k1, p1, k1).

Row 60:  (k1, p1, k1), knit to last three stitches, (k1, p1, k1).

Row 61:  (k1, p1, k1), k2, *(k2, yo, k2tog)* X 5, k3, (k1, p1, k1).

Row 62:  (k1, p1, k1), k3, *(k2, yo, k2tog)* X 5, k2, (k1, p1, k1).

Row 63:  (k1, p1, k1), k2, *(k2, yo, k2tog)* X 5, k3, (k1, p1, k1).

Row 64:  (k1, p1, k1), knit to last three sts, (k1, p1, k1).

Rows 65-72: repeat rows 57-64

Rows 73-79: repeat rows 57-63.

After the last row, cut your yarn leaving two yards for grafting (or three needle bind-off) later.  Slip these stitches to a stitch holder and put in a safe place.  Go back to clue one and repeat this process. Tomorrow you will receive the stitch pattern for the main body of the scarf…it is easy and fun to do…after all this hard work, clue #7 will allow you to rest on your “laurels” a bit!  Take care and please let me know how things are going!  Remember to check the corrections and download the corrected blogs.  Again, thank you for your patience!xox m.e. and Summit Yarn 🙂
