I wanted to use up some of my sock yarn for things other than socks.  Valkyrie is a one-skein scarf with an easy-to-follow cables and lace pattern.

It can be made wider to make it more of a stole.  I can see this in some gorgeous hand-dyed silk laceweight with one or two extra pattern repeats.

The combination of cables and lace with purled wrong-side rows makes for a nice pattern that goes smoothly and is easy and quick to knit.

  1. Ooh, Rosi, that’s lovely. Now this is why spinning is so great – I can make yarn to knit that pattern. Heh.
