Knitted in open lacy stitches, this scarf is a wonderful project for knitters looking to try their hands at lace with a project they can wear right away.

18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


sk2p (slip-k2tog-pass slipped st over)
A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle as if to knit, and slip the next st from the left needle to the right needle.
2. Knit the next 2 sts together.
3. With tip of left needle, lift the slipped st (the 2nd st on right needle) up and over the k2tog (first st on right needle) and off the needle - you have decreased 2 sts.


yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.


St pattern includes increases (yarn over (yo)) to compensate for each decrease (sk2p), the st count should always remain the same. Be sure to count your sts a the end of each row!

Cast on 23 sts.
Row 1 (Wrong Side): K2, place marker (pm), p to last 2 sts, pm, k2.
Note: Markers are placed to define the 2 border sts at beg and at end of row. Border sts are always worked in Garter st (k every row). In following rows, slip markers each time you come to them.
Row 2: K3, *yo, k1, sk2p, k1, yo, k1; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 3: K2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
Rep Rows 2 and 3 until almost all yarn has been used.
Bind off.


Weave in ends.

Cotton Lace Scarf Reviewed by Nancy on 2013-02-12 ****
I too like this scarf and it's an easy pattern. However, as stated previously, the ending bind off edge does not naturally match the beginning edge. Thank you for letting us know about blocking it and gently stretching it. I have just finished mine and plan to block it and will do that. I want to give it as a gift in a few days.
