Clover Leaf Scarf or Stole


Green Irish pasture:
Grazing on clover-
Frisky Horse.

Inspired by Kate Gilbert’s Clapotis, this Clover Leaf Scarf/Stole is knitted diagonally with a combination of clover leaf eyelets and long-ladder patterns.

Long-ladder stitches are dropped on every right side row. The following is a description of the long-ladder pattern in Mary Thomas’ Book of Knitting Patterns, p.100-101: “A stitch, when dropped, will leave an open ladder space about three times the normal width of the stitch, and in closely spaced, long ladder patterns will add considerably to the width of the fabric.”
