Pattern Info

  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Gauge: 9 rows and 14 sts = 2¾” in hdc, blocked to 3″
  • Completed dimensions: Approx. 56” x 8.5”

Notes

(Do not proceed until you read the notes… or you will regret it!)

  • Chain-2 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch unless otherwise stated. To ensure that the vertical lace line rows align properly, work the first hdc of each row in first hdc (same stitch from which the beginning chain-2 is made); work the last hdc in last stitch of the row and not in top of the beginning chain-2.
  • Beginning with Row 3 and continuing throughout the pattern, a “st” may be a stitch or a chain.
  • The stitch placement for the lace flower is counter-intuitive. For the petals to appear the same size and symmetrical, follow the instructions exactly.
  • For a wider scarf, work additional beginning chains in an odd multiple of 14 stitches plus 8 stitches. For a longer scarf, rep Edging Row 2 until half the desired increase in length is achieved on each side. A wider or longer scarf may require the purchase of additional yarn.

Special Stitch

  • Picot = Ch 1, sl st in base of last sc made.
