We have spotted another fantastic design in Fyberspates yarn, this time our lustrous Nef Lace. Nef Lace is 1312 yards of a stunning blend of 70% Alpaca, 20% Silk, 10% Cashmere so will knit up to give beautiful drape and softness. This delicate scarf only uses 1 skein and so is ideal for some stash busting or a special purchase if you've been dying to try out this yarn.

The scarf was designed for a regular feature in Simply Knitting magazine called 'Have a Ball' which is a challenge to design stashbusting pieces with just 1 100g skein. It features a chevron lace pattern created by a simple four-row lace repeat. The scarf is designed by Lynne Tuck and can be found in this month's issue of Simply Knitting Magazine (Issue 92, May 2012). Be sure to grab your copy at your local newsagents or yarn shop and you can purchase Nef Lace on the shop site.


  1. Where can we get the yarns from? it is a lovely scarf, don't know if i am skilled enough to make it but i will give it a go.

  2. Hi Katie:I think it's great that you are learning how to knit. It's relaly a great and relaxing hobby and you will be hooked once you see all the yarn and the idea of what you can make with it. I learned how to knit and crochet several years ago and have made several scarves. However, you can the hang and make that first scraf, then you are going to want to knit a hat as well. Good luck and I will keep reading of your progress.
