    I’m definitely going to have to search through my yarn stash and find something suitable for this. Do you know, is laceweight yarn the same as 4-ply?

    Hi Jennie,
    Thanks very much for your comments. 4-ply is quite a bit thicker than laceweight but I think it would work fine – I’d just advise you to do a test swatch first to see how wide the scarf will be. If you need to get rid of some pattern repeats, just subtract multiples of 8 from the original number of chains. So 8 less chains to have 1 less pattern repeat, 16 less chains for 2 less repeats etc. Hope that helps – let me know how you get on. 🙂
    Thanks.

    Beautiful! I’ve been looking for a pattern for a pretty yet warm scarf for ages and this is perfect. I will definitely be making a couple of these this winter! Thanks for sharing.

    The scarf is beautiful! My cousin found it on ravelry and wants to make it for me since I am, in fact, a Cassia. I’m curious about how you got the name. 🙂

    Thanks very much for your kind comments.

    Cassia – I studied Roman archaeology at Uni and loved the names from the time – Cassia being one such name. You’re lucky to have such a beautiful name. 🙂

    I am making this out of 2 lace wt yarns, as one seemed too flimsy. One is a hand dyed long repeat the other is a pale blue solid so hope the two will make a nice soft undulating pattern. I love the way this stitch looks. Thanks.
