Such fun!

To quote Jackie: "Knit this short ascot-like scarf and wear a heart on your heart. The knitted lace mesh simulates the look of filet lace crochet or darned netting, but is actually knitted. A boldly outlined heart motif at each of end of the scarf is set against the background of lace mesh." Sizing: 7" by 32" after tension blocking (17.78 cm by 81.28 cm); the scarf can easily be knitted longer by planning for more yarn and working additional rows of the filet lace mesh pattern between the two heart motifs

Yarn: 125 yards (114 m) fingering weight; choose a yarn that will hold a good blocking as the stitch pattern has a tendency to bias somewhat in its unblocked state

Suggested needles: US 6 (4 mm)

Gauge: 20 stitches x 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) after tension blocking
