October is for Spinners

I've written my very first pattern, and you know it had to be for the October scarf! From the pattern description:

Arachne, the original spinner, is portrayed here in a twisted stitch pattern from Barbara Walker’s Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns (The chart can be found on page 35 if you are more comfortable with boxes than you are with words.). The scarf begins on size 6 US needles using four stands of lace weight yarn held together. While the scarf progresses threads are dropped and the needle size is increased
as the consistency of our spinner’s web is interrupted by neglect and disrepair.

Download it from here. Happy Halloween, everyone!
