Modification Monday: Apple Leaf Lace Scarf



Original Pattern: Scroll Lace Scarf

Knitter Extraordinaire: Hinke (Rav Id)

Mods:
Using the Scroll Lace Scarf and the Heart to Heart Beaded Scarf  as a starting point, Hinke created this stunning shawl, which was intended as a stash-busting project. She intentionally made it a bit smaller than the pattern, and instead of the lace trim from the Scroll Lace Scarf, she used  apple leaf lace.




What Makes This Awesome: Stash busting scarves are always a win, especially when they are as elegant and timeless as this one. I love the simple stockinette paired with the gorgeous apple leaf lace. There are so many lovely lace trim patterns out there, and I love how Hinke customized her scarf to include one that she loved. This is proof positive that you can make a totally original shawl/scarf by using a pattern as a guideline, and any trim you want. Go forth and customize!!
