I swear I was not planning on making another Ginkgo, but.... somehow it just happened.
I was trying some simple lace stitches for fun, as in swatching. But I saw the potential of it becoming a scarf, with simple Ginkgo motif. So, here it is.
I think it's all because how I work with my studio work, in series, that I cannot help but finding different way to use the motif. Honestly I cannot guarantee there won't be more ginkgos, as some ideas are brewing in my head while knitting the scarf.
Scarves are not the most fun knitting, but it's actually more functional than shawls to me.
I used Elann Baby Cahsmere which is 60% baby alpaca, 30% merino, and 10% cashmere. It's fiber content makes it very warm even for such a lacey pattern. The scarf is long, blocked out to be 86" long. I was able to wrap it around twice around my neck, which I like that a lot. I think it will work with a bit shorter length as well.
