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.

This is truly an enjoyable pattern to make. I used Knitpicks Aloft in Cosmopolitan. I used my HiyaHiya Lace circular needles. I found it quick and easy to follow the instructions. My finished product once blocked was a delight that I use every day in the office to keep the air conditioning off my neck and shoulders. I have two more balls of Aloft and will be using this pattern to make gifts.

This pattern was well written with the end product being spectacular. SweaterBabe patterns never fail from the pattern direction to the finished product. This light, airy scarf is perfect for dressing up any outfit.

The pattern is set out well and does not require too many skills just knit, purl, yarn over and knit two together. I had no trouble following the chart or written instructions. However the pattern is not easy to remember so you have to concentrate. I found I had to count my stitches at the end of each row just to make sure I had the right number on the needle.I used Rowan Kidsilk Haze which worked well on one size smaller needles. It will be a gift for my Grandma, I hope she likes it too.

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.
