kits kerchief
girly lace kerchief for the modern domestic goddess

I am a Kitsilano housewife; I sculpt my body at hot yoga, dine on organic food, and stroll down to the Granville Island Market for my weekly grocery-shop. I live the good life with my tall, dark, well-educated (and wealthy) husband. I have a busy volunteer schedule but still manage to find plenty of leisure time to bask in the sunshine at Kits beach and knit my heart out! (ok... I must admit, this is a fantasy... but an interesting fantasy nonetheless!)

This frothy little kerchief is the perfect addition to the hottie housewife's wardrobe. It also works for all the rest of us wannabes who still have to work for a living!


Kerchief is about 22 by 7 inches

The design is quite flexible and the finished fabric is quite stretchy. The finished size will depend on your gauge and how aggressively you block the kerchief.

The kerchief can also be made into a shawl. To do this, work [k4] instead of [sl3, p1] at the start of every WS row, and continue to increase until the shawl is 1/2 the desired length, working one even repeat, then decrease.

materials 150 yds lace weight yarn for kerchief size
(sample shown in Plymouth Ecco Cashmere in 'natural')
gauge 26 sts / 4" in stockinette stitch
suggested needles US #2 / 2.75 mm needles; straight or circular; (or as required to meet gauge)
notes The kerchief is knit from end to end, increasing to the deepest point, then decreasing to the other end. Lace pattern is charted. Lace is worked on both RS and WS rows.
