Free pattern Friday: Sweet Mama May 8, 2015 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas


Note: This pattern is only free through end of day Mother?s Day 2015 (May 10) with coupon code MD2015.

J. L. Finkelstein’s Sweet Mama scarflette is a very easy and fun little confection that requires only a little bit of lace weight yarn to work up. If you have about 20g left in your stash from any of your previous projects, then you have enough! If you prefer something a little more substantial, simply adjust your needle-size and use a heavier weight yarn.

The pattern is easily adjusted in terms of size just by continuing the pattern past the specified dimensions – the result will be a lovely triangular shawl.  The scarflette is worked on a diagonal and can be easily ended at any size.

While the scarflette itself would make a great Mother’s Day gift, whipping this up in time for Sunday is probably not feasible for most of us.  That said, If the woman you plan to honour this weekend is a knitter, why not gift the pattern along with a beautifully indulgent skein of yarn?

Remember, Sweet Mama is only free through Sunday so be sure to download it in the next day or two even if you don’t plan to knit it right away.

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!!
