I’ve been obsessed with the Shetland Lace Bird’s Eye stitch all spring (I call it the Hring Stitch in this pattern, which means Circle in Icelandic) and have wanted to use it in a lacy scarf, but it isn’t the easiest to work… so I made you two options for this scarf! You can work the Hring Stitch and be a bit challenged, or you can go easy on yourself and work the eyelet stitch. It is totally up to you!
Kits for Hring Scarf were sent as May's shipment for Lola's Choice (Laura's super fun small knitted kit club). You can also purchase the pattern as a pdf and gather your own supplies to make one. If you don’t want to miss out on future Lola’s Choice kits you should sign up!
Laura does have a few extra Hring kits on hand... if you really really want one, just e-mail her!
