Saigon Scarf Transition

This is the fifth in a series of posts. If you are new to the party, please take a few minutes to review all posts with the "Saigon" label.
The chart I am posting today is a transition chart from the current pattern to the next pattern. This chart is knit once, after you have completed as many repeats of chart two as you wanted. The pattern we are moving into is really interesting and fun to work. Everyone who has seen me knitting it likes it. That said, if you feel conservative you are welcome to continue knitting chart two until the scarf is a good length and wait for me to post a final chart for you. That will be when I am done and make a chart that reverses chart one. If you are more adventurous, follow me... This picture illustrates the section you will be knitting with today's chart. What you won't appreciate until blocking is the movement in the pattern. This is a good exploration of lace patterning, where the increases and decreases begin near each other and move away from each other, creating undulations in the fabric. The border of this scarf achieves scallops the same way. Enjoy! The next chart will be posted after Thanksgiving. More glamorous food photos to come!


  1. THanks again! Lovely design...your talent is showing!

  2. I really like this chart. think I'll get it copied on transparencies and flip it over to make a repeat or two.

  3. Thank you !!!! This is great ,

  4. I am glad you are enjoying the pattern. I finished mine and blocked it last night. I think you will be suprised and pleased when you see the finished piece. I just have to figure out the best way to photograph the scarf to really show it off well. I am pondering...
