victorian neck knit
Toe: Using your chosen toe-up CO method, CO 22 sts, or 11 sts on each of two needles.
Cuff CO 72 sts.
NOTE: In the pattern, where I say to disregard row 1, I mean row one (the ‘no stitch’ row) of the charted pattern – I made the chart one row too long.
Socks Loosely cast on 68 sts leaving a 12-inch tail to sew down cuff.
Lily of the Valley (Shown in Green above): String 40[50, 60, 70, 80] beads onto the yarn.
If working back and forth in rows: Using largest straight needles and long tail method, loosely CO 132 sts.

Call it a choker, call it a scarflette… It will keep your neck cozy and toasty all winter with great style !! A very quick project, yet interesting enough to keep your attention… ;-) This pattern offers two choices of lace pattern for the scarflette, and two flower embellishment options. I’ve rated the slanted lace choker an “intermediate challenge” because it requires attention not to mess up the slants, but really if you can knit an Isabeau purse you can make a Felicie choker !!!
Happy 2011! We are deep into winter now, with feet of snow outside here in the frozen northeast.
