Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over

Pattern Description:

Lacy Serpentine Scarf is knit side-to-side along its length in an amazingly easy lace pattern that looks more complicated than it really is.

The serpentine lace stitch has only three different patterned rows, so the rhythm is quickly learned and enjoyed.

To knit the scarf, you merely cast on for one side of the scarf, then work the easily memorized pattern in long rows. Before you know it, you've knit across the scarf and are ready to bind off for the other side.


17 stitches x 32 rows = 4" blocked

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 71" by 9"; guidance for adjusting size of scarf is included


  • 400 yards laceweight yarn
  • Suggested needles: US 4 (3.5 mm)

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle for finishing ends
