avaElongated Free Scarf Pattern

     The idea for this pattern has been gnawing at me ever since I finished the Ava Lynne Baby Hat. The Ava Lynne eyelet pattern is easy to knit but it still creates a great deal of visual interest so I knew that I was going to use it again. I took the same basic eyelet pattern from Ava Lynne and extended it (both in width & length) to create a more elegant stitch pattern. This scarf has a beautiful subtle wave along the edges. I am really happy with it and I hope you all enjoy it.

     This pattern is #6 of the 14 free weekly patterns that I will be posting on this blog.
