This one is perfect for spring. It's a light weight infinity scarf with an open, lacy stitch pattern. I really want to keep this one for myself, but I am (probably) going to be nice and gift it to my beautiful sister-in-law for her birthday.
This pattern is a little scary at first because you begin by wrapping yarn over your needle in one row and then dropping it off in the next. Once you get the hang of it, you'll see that the technique is nothing to be afraid of.
