Ribbed Lace Scarf

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving holiday! There’s only a little over twenty days until Christmas and I’m sure you all are getting your gifts and plans in order for the special day. If you are going to knit a gift this year and haven’t decided on what, take a look at my “Holiday Quick Knits” section. If you still can’t find what you are looking for then my new scarf pattern might do the trick.

This ribbed lace scarf is the newest addition to my “Quick Knits” series. I have seen many different ribbed lace patterns but I haven’t seen one that produces a design quite like this one.

I admit when I first tested out the stitch I was very skeptical. But after forcing myself to stick it out for about five or six rows, I was very pleased with the stitch pattern. The pattern produces a helix/zigzag-like design for the ribbing and is separated with yarn-overs which make up the lace portion. I used a bamboo/acrylic blend yarn which makes this scarf look extra fluffy and airy (or maybe it’s just the stitch pattern).

In the end, I am very pleased with the result: a very attractive and stretchy scarf that takes almost no time at all to knit. Side note: I do recommend blocking the scarf for best results. My scarf did curl a bit near the cast-on and bind-off edges.

I added tassels to my Ribbed Lace Scarf. Measures approx. 63″ (160cm) long and 5″ (13cm) wide unstretched and without tassels.
