  • Lauper is a versatile accessory - a neck tie, head scarf, hair bow or belt that can be worn in a multitude of ways, adding personality to any outfit. It is quick to knit and uses only a small amount of yarn. Lauper is commenced with just three stitches, with a single lace leaf then knitted. This is left to one side, then a second matching leaf is knitted followed by a simple garter stitch length. Finally, the first leaf is joined to the end of the garter stitch strip. The pattern was inspired by the 1980s pop star Cyndi Lauper and her wild, eclectic and fun style.

    Lauper is knitted using Susan Crawford Fenella, a 2 ply (vintage) weight yarn, worsted spun for a soft handle. Exquisite for Fair Isle projects as well as textured and lace stitches.

    Lauper is shown here in a variety of colour ways using; Delico (peach), Forget me not (bright blue), Sloe Gin (dark purple), Atomic Red (bright orange-red), Myrtle (bottle green), Verdigris (sage green) and Rhubarb (dark pink).

    The pattern includes clear written pattern directions, together with charted lace pattern instructions.
