This booklet contains patterns for 12 colourful scarves in Christine Mirecki’s inimitable style.

We would never have thought that the theme “bobbin lace scarf” could be so productive; the first booklet with scarves (Farben sind Spitze) appeared as early as 2001 and the demand for scarf patterns does not seem to be falling off.

Two of the scarves (one of which is shown on the book cover) are something quite new: Here the coloured pairs are used so cleverly that the individual forms necessarily have different colours in each repeat of the pattern; the result is very colourful.

The scarves are worked with silk thread (Tussah, Schappe, Pagoda, Shantung jaspé) which is familiar from other scarf patterns. To avoid questions, this time the amount of thread necessary is also given. In most cases 20 to 30 pairs of bobbins are necessary.

Christine Mirecki is full of new ideas: none of these scarves has previously been exhibited anywhere or the pattern offered for sale on its own.
