Mohair Lace Scarf

This is a pattern that we gave out free in my shop, the House of Needlecraft (now out of business). It was our most popular free pattern, and is one of my all time favorite lace stitch patterns. Though it was written for mohair, I've found this pattern works well with ANY yarn from worsted weight to bulky. I've used sport and even fingering weight too by doubling the strands. So it's pretty versatile. It knits up quickly, and makes a great gift item.




Materials: 200 yards Mohair, or 200 yards of any bulky weight yarn. Model was made using 1 strand of N.Y. Yarns Fluff Print in Evening Blue and 1 strand of Bernat Baby Soft in Bongo Blue.

Tools: Size 11, 13, or 15 needles

Gauge: Not really important.

Finished size: About 7 to 8 inches wide and 5 to 6 feet long.



Cast on 21 or 25 sts.

Rows 1 and 2: Knit 2 rows.

Row 3: K2, YO, K2tog. Repeat across ending with K1.

Repeat row 3 to desired length, knit 2 rows. Bind off. Weave in ends.

Enjoy!

Thanks for your simple pattern. I am a new knitter and think I can handle the few variations within this pattern. Using mohair so hope it works. Thanks again, VB in Michigan
