Dewdrop Simple Lace Scarf Knitting PatternDesigned by Charles Voth This is a great stash reducing scarf. It's a simple and straight forward lace pattern that is easy to knit and to remember. Yarn:
This scarf is knit with a ribbon yarn and a kid mohair yarn combined. For the kid mohair you could use anywhere from a lace weight up to a light worsted or DK weight with no problem. Needles:
6-7 mm (US 10 to 11) Gauge:
Not too important as it will vary with the yarn combination you choose. For a wide enough scarf, and to prevent a dense fabric avoid using needles smaller than 6 mm (US 10). Instructions: Note:Every row has a border stitch at the beginning and end. To work the border stitch, slip first stitch of every row as if to purl; knit the last stitch of every row.
CO 23 sts.
Row 1: 1 border stitch; work the 6 stitch pattern repeat 3 times; work last 3 sts of chart; finish with a border stitch.
Rows 2 - 8: Continue chart as above; don't forget the initial and final border sts. Work rows 1-8 of chart a total of 11 times. Then, work rows 1 to 6. For the neck portion of the scarf follow these steps:
Row 95: border stitch, *K1, P1* repeat till the last stitch, the border stitch, which should be a knit st.
Rows 96 - 153: Continue in k1, p1 ribbing for a total of 59 rows, end with a RS row.
Row 154 (WS): Begin chart at row 8.
Rows 155 - 244: Work rows 1-8 of chart a total of 11 times ending with chart row 8.
Rows 245 - 250: Knit rows 1 to 6 of chart. BO loosely (or with a needle one size larger) by knitting the k sts and purling the p sts as they present themselves. Chart Legend:
Blank boxes: Knit
Black Dot: Purl
Empty circle: Yarn over (If the stitch prior to the yarn over is a purl stitch and the following stitch is knit, simply knit the next stitch without bringing the yarn down to the back of the work, this will create a yarnover. If the stitch prior to the yarnover is a knit stitch and the following one is a purl stitch, make one complete counter-clockwise wrap of yarn around the right-hand needle bringing the yarn up to the front of the work just prior to purling the next stitch.)
Slash-3: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch back over the 2nd stitch and off the right-hand needle. © Charles Voth. Visit his blog at http://jigraknits.wordpress.com/ See Abbreviations and the Glossary for help.
