Art Deco Scarf absolutely Sets My Picot Free!


Originally uploaded by figpox

CLF Member Figpox created this gorgeous scarf as a charity project! Who ever wins this scarf is one lucky person! Figpox used Patons Silk Bamboo to fashion this stunning pattern by Brigitte Read found here, http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/step-by-step-broomstick-l.html

Broomstick lace is one of my favorite techniques because it can be so very visually appealing. It’s not a difficult technique to master,and once you get your feel for it, you can whip out stunning projects that have delicate and airy feel, and yet a real solid integrity!

I love what Figpox did in chosing the colors of the yarn, and the content absolutely is a perfect choice for this kind of construction!

Congratulations Figpox, you are a winner! Consider yourself awarded the Set My Picot Free Award for outstanding crochet composition!
