Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl dec, double dec, yo, crochet chain

Pattern Description:

This is another great skill-building design. I took an every-row lace edging stitch pattern, mirror-imaged it and then inserted knit (not purled) wrong-side rows, for a reversible garter stitch and lace fabric.

Samples are knit in Cascade Yarns Dolce, used double, and Kid Seta, used triple. Knitting with 3 strands of this yarn couldn't be easier. The kid mohair in the Kid Seta wants to cling to itself, so the strands work as one.

Whether chunky and casual or romantically light as air, this scarf can complement any outfit. So, knit it short and shirr it around your neck for some youthful style, or knit it long to wear traditionally wrapped - the wear options are yours
