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!!!

Suz said...

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!

Jamie @ Sheepless In The City said...

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"?

Lauren Wayne said...

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

Lauren Wayne said...

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

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

Cindy said...

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!

Janine said...

Hi Love the pattern. I want to make it wider. what is the pattern "multiple" to add on stitches?

Stacy said...

Hi Janine. I haven't knit this scarf in a long time, but the instructions say to make it to wider to cast on extra stitches in multiples of four. So instead of casting on 16 stitches, you could cast on 20 or 24 or 28, etc.

I hope you see this comment. I could not reply to your email. Thank you for your kind words about the patterns.


Stacy said...

Oops, that should have been, "... to make it wider ..."
