Simple Lace Scarf Pattern

I wrote about this scarf last month, but wanted to officially post the pattern with decent pictures. That's my sister Hil modeling the scarf after I gave it to her last night. She's just starting to get a baby bump.

It's a simple one row lace scarf knit on big needles. The Malabrigo yarn that I used is pillow soft. I'm sensitive to wool and usually can't wear it next to my skin, but this yarn didn't bother me at all when I tried on the scarf.

After I washed it in rinse-free Soak and blocked it, the pattern opened up and it got quite a bit longer. (Flora-scented Soak smells SO good. )

If you want your scarf narrower or wider, just be sure to cast on a multiple of four stitches. I think this pattern would also look good in a fine weight yarn using much smaller needles.


Two skeins of Malabrigo Merino Worsted

Size 15 needles


K2: knit two stitches

YO: yarn over

PSSO: pass slipped stitch over

To knit the scarf:

Using size 15 needles, cast on 16 stitches.

Row one: *K2, YO, slip one stitch purlwise, K1, PSSO*, repeat to end of row.

Repeat row one until scarf reaches desired length.

Cast off and enjoy.

I just copied your pattern to my book. The scarf would make a great gift for my sisters too. I have never heard of Soak so thank you for the introduction to a new product. Have a wonderful day.

Lovely scarf and model. I have yet to get my hands on Malabrigo - heard so many good things about it - but I'm trying really hard to not buy yarn until I finish some projects!!!

Oh what a cute model and the scarf is the finishing touch to a glowing woman's neck
Wonderful..too bad I don't know a knitting needle from a pine needle..But I know pretty when I see it
Tell your sister I adore the artwork on her walls by the way nice colors

What a pretty scarf! It's a great gift! I ordered some white fleece scarves for my gf's and I'll add yo-yo's to them. Hope they like them!

Have a great day!!!

Scarves are always great gifts. I've bookmarked this!

This looks like an AWESOME pattern! Now I just need to get brave and learn more than the basic knit stitch!

KIM said...

Love the look of this scarf. Will make after I am done with 2 pairs of socks. Where do you get "SOAK"?

This is nice and easy and fun — thank you! I'm making it from some shimmery ribbon yarn and it's gorgeous.

Hey, it took me a year apparently, but I finished. ;)

I'm going to make a couple more as gifts!

Love this pattern! I knit it in a cream coloured light wool blend for my daughter. Cast on 24 stitches and joined the ends to make a circular scarf. Gorgeous!
