Nympheas Lace Scarf - FO

Yes - finally, I have finished knitting and blocked my Nympheas scarf.

I decided I needed to just get on and do it rather than picking it up, doing one pattern repeat and then putting it down again before picking it back up again a couple of days later.

The pattern: Nympheas by Mimi Hill (Ravelry link).
The yarn: Angel Sock from Natural Dye Studio in a dusky pink.
Needles: 4mm KnitPro Spectra.

The scarf measured 27x110cm before blocking.

After blocking, it had grown to 30x150cm, which gives a decent size.

Here's a close-up of the pattern.

And here's a close-up of one diamond.
Would I recommend this pattern?  Yes.  Mimi's patterns are always clearly written out and with this one, there are written instructions as well as a chart. 

I have to admit that when I first saw that it wasn't perfectly symmetrical but the rows of diamonds/leaves are offset, I wasn't 100% sure, but now that it's finished, I really like it.

Unfortunately, I don't really have anything to wear it with, so it may end up as a gift for someone.


  1. It's gorgeous!!! Please don't give it away, a non-knitter won't appreciate it! :)

  2. Definitely keep it! It's beautiful. You'll just have to buy yourself something to go with it!!
