Fiesta Free Scarf Pattern and Yarn Giveaway

Share Button

The month of September brings us a new free pattern featuring a Fiesta yarn. This month’s pattern uses Fiesta Gracie Lace. Gracie Lace is a wonderful blend of extrafine merino, silk, and cashmere. The featured color is Vintage.

Gracie Lace Scarf is a lacy scarf that is knit holding the yarn doubled. The finished scarf is long enough to wrap around your neck several times and is incredibly soft.

The lace pattern doesn’t get lost in the color pattern of the yarn. It would look fantastic in any of the Gracie Lace colorways.

The colorway that it is shown in, Vintage, reminds me of fall. It has all the colors that we find on the trees here in New England once they start to change. Autumn is one of my favorite times of year and I love the way the color represents it.

We’re giving away a skein of the yarn and the needles to complete the project. Leave a comment with your favorite way to use lace yarn. You have until Wednesday, September 26th at 9:00am EDT.

    Although I like making and wearing scarves, I have found that shawlettes are more interesting to knit and really fun to wear. Gracie Lace is a gorgeous colorway.

  • Kathy G

    I love knitting lace with the softest of yarns…items knitted this way span the seasons. I find I can wear lace items with any of my jackets or (since I live in Florida) wear them with any t-shirt for a fashion effect. I love WEBS..I have ordered from them exclusively since I discovered them…thank you for the great service!

  • Maillendroit

    I like to combine lace and beads in scarves or shawlettes that i wear like a scarf.

  • AnneS

    I’ve mostly made lace shawls and scarves, but am trying two or more laceweight strands of different colors knitted together in a plain stitch to give a complex color element to sweaters and scarves.

    I like knitting lace shawls and socks… they turn out so pretty no matter what weight of yarn I use.

    I love Vintage things. Clothing, jewelry, furniture, knitting. My favorite use of lace yarn is elaborate lace shawls, but I also love to use it in lightweight cardigans and shrugs.

  • Corby

    I love knitting lace, it makes everything look so special. The colors are pretty too!

  • Roberta Fuller

    This year I took to knitting shawls and with each new shawl I tried a more complex patterns. I really love the lace designs and jeweltone colors.

  • Margaret

    So far I’ve only tried small scarves, but recently have developed a passion for knitting shawls. Maybe someday I’ll be brave enough to try a lace shawl!!

  • Marsha C.

    Shawls, shawls, shawls! I have become a lace knitting fiend, it is so much fun! I like the Gracie Lace Scarf pattern here too. Thanks for the opportunity to win a skein of that luscious yarn.

  • Kim Q

    Shawls! I love knitting lace shawls…or more accurately, shawlettes, since I prefer the shorter variety. I also prefer the shawls that are shaped so that they will stay on the shoulders.

  • Carmen Nuland

    I’ve only used lace-weight once and that was for a shawl. I want to use more lace in the future.

  • Sue Z Q

    I love making shawls and cowls but have never actually used lace weight yarn only fingering weight so far. I’d love to give lace weight yarn a try though.

  • sal

    i’m crocheting with lace yarn now.

  • Kathleen C.

    I have never knit anything with lace yarn. But I would love too, especially with a yarn as beautiful as Gracie Lace.

  • Jen

    Stoles and scarves

  • Karen E

    A shawl or stole.

  • Jane

    Lovely colors to chose from with this yarn. Scarfs knit with this will look elegant.

    I love using lace yarn for wraps and scarves!

  • Catherine McCourt

    I have not knit anything from lace yarn yet! I’ve started a couple of fingering-weight lace shawls, though.

    Making Shawls with BEADS!! Thousands of Beads and Lace :)

  • Annie

    I love lace yarn for knitting shawls and wraps.

  • Jen Funk

    I actually like it for socks. But scarves have gotten the lace treatment in my house too.

  • JudyC

    How could this yarn be anything but luscious with such a combination! Cannot wait to make a shawl – for me!

  • Sheila

    So far I’ve only knit shawls with lace yarn, but I’d kind of like to do a lightweight sweater with lace weight yarn.

  • Eileen

    Love lacy shawls!

  • http://www.facebook.com/angelalutz Angela Cooper Lutz

    I have been looking for a new scarf pattern!!!!!

  • Linda F

    I like to make lace

  • MarleneG

    My favorite use for ace yarn is small shawlettes. I love lace yarn but don’t have the patience to do something really large with it. Small shawls or scarves are the perfect balance for me.

  • Sarah from Ctown

    I love lace yarn for smaller projects – cowls or scarves or even little shawlettes. Still working up my confidence level to tackle something bigger.

  • Linda-Sue Lohse-Lange

    I use merino lace yarns for lacey scarves and cowls. This eyelet pattern remnds me of my first sweater I made from shetland at age 12 fifty years ago!

  • Rita Goshorn

    i use lace weight for shawls … so fine!

    Lace yarn for beautiful, heavenly shawls!
