When a heavy scarf just won't do, grab this gossamer-weight lace scarf instead! The silk/kid mohair blend lace-weight yarn knit on size 9 needles creates a supremely soft scarf.
An open lace panel with gentle peaks along one long edge is contrasted with a bit of garter stitch for lots of textural interest.
This scarf is very light, yet has enough body to allow itself to be draped in many pretty ways.
Wrap it around your neck like a cowl and tuck in the ends, drape it around your neck with the ends drawn through the folded middle loop, or tie it askew with a loose knot – it will always add a nice touch of femininity to your outfit.
PLUS, it's knit from just one ball of yarn. . . making it an ideal gift knit or quick knit for yourself!
ALSO available as part of The Gossamer Lace Collection eBook, which includes 4 Lace Shawl/Scarf patterns.

I made this up in Debbie Bliss PartyAngel, mohair silk mix with a touch of glitter. After three false starts I switched to bamboo needles, which solved the problem of the yarn slipping off the needles all the time. The pattern is really easy to follow. I was going to give this to my sister, but I'm will have to make another one for her so I can keep it!

I love making this scarf. The first one I made was a gift for a friend. She thought I had purchased it. I made a second one in lilac and plan on making more. So soft, pretty and the lace pattern is very feminine.

pattern easy to read and to follow, altho necessary to really follow it.
as mohair is too itchy for my skin, decided to use a beautiful cashmere. but the pattern does not seem to hold up to the cashmere as well as the mohair.

This is a beautiful scarf and the pattern is awesome and easy to read. I made one for myself and will make another for a friend! However, if you have never knit lace before, this might be tricky. I find that shorter, repeating lace patterns are easier to keep track of. This one has a lot of stitches per row so it can be easy to lose your place if you are not paying close attention.

Although I haven't made this beautiful scarf yet, I can't wait to do so. I did quickly go over the pattern and I don't see where I would have any problems. I'm making this as a gift and I KNOW she is going to love it!!

This is the first lace weight project I have knit. It took a little patience to get it started and get used to working with the lace weight yarn. I would suggest using "lace" knitting needles. I started out with blunt tip wood needles and after a couple of frustrating rows I switched to a set of Addi lace needles and I am having a much easier time now. Of course a more experienced knitter would probably already know this. As far as the pattern goes, it is very well written, easy to follow with the chart. Another exquisite pattern from sweaterbabe!

This was my first lace project and first time working with lace-weight yarn. It was a little tricky at first, but the instructions in the pattern are very clear and I got the hang of it and have a quickly knitted, beautiful project.

The pattern is easy to follow and because there are only a few stitches it knits up really quickly, I used 2 ply Merino Lace yarn and it looks great. I will make more for Christmas gifts.

I made this scarf is some leftover mohair yarn that was worsted weight (trying to use some of my stash). By going down to size 8 needles, it worked. Not shear, but really different than the run of the mill scarf patterns.
I am now making it in a lace weight I found in my stash for myself and love it.
