In the Stacks

Designed by Jennifer Weissman

Have you ever admired the intricate ironwork you can find in beautiful old libraries? In the library stacks, the rows of shelving can be quite fanciful and lovely — it was tracery like this that inspired me to design "In the Stacks". This sport weight scarf features a beginner-friendly diagonal lace with the look of library ironwork. Throughout the design, sections of the lace alternate with sections of bias stockinette and garter stitch, making for an engaging knit. Shaped like a rectangle with pointed ends, the finished piece is easy to wear and eye-catching, rich with interesting diagonals and textures.
