Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, yo, k2tog, k3tog

Pattern Description:

This is another great skill-building design. The lace pattern consists of 3 simple stitches which are repeated on every row. The quirky construction makes the fabric reversible, so the fabric peeking through the keyhole openings on both sides of the scarf never show a wrong side.

Whether chunky and casual, silky and elegant, or romantically light as a feather, this scarf can complement any outfit. So, knit it short, knit it long, knit it fine, knit it thick - the design is very adjustable. Samples show Medium, Long, and Even Longer lengths!

Samples are knit in Cascade Yarns Dolce, Kid Seta and Cotton Rich DK (used double), showing a wide variety of textures, drapes and thicknesses. Flair is just 2 skeins away!


Medium Scarf: 12 sts and 14 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st with size 13 ndls,

Long Scarf: 17 sts and 19 rows = 4" in St st with size 10 ndls, and

Even Longer Scarf: 14 sts and 14 rows = 4" in St st with size 11 ndls or size to give gauge. To save time, take time to check gauge.

Note: Scarf widths are all approx. the same, despite gauge variances, due to some yarns having more drape (hanging more, as with cotton) and others less so, as with kid mohair.
