Great Adirondack Waterfall Scarf (Free Scarf Pattern)
As much as I love lace, I have a difficult time paying close enough attention to follow complicated stitch patterns. However, I have discovered a very simple pattern that is easy to remember and looks wonderful with unusual yarns. I've nicknamed it "big fat needle lace" because it works really well on chunky yarns. Although it is a one-sided pattern, the reverse side also looks good in the yarns that I have tried it with.
The scarf on the left was knit with one skein of the Great Adirondack Waterfall yarn, which is a strand of fluffy mohair with a strand of shiny ribbon. The one on the right is knit with Feza Alp yarn:
The pattern is a multiple of 10 stitches plus 3:
Cast on 33 stitches (using #13 needles for the Waterfall yarn, #11 for the Feza Alp).
Right side row: k2 *yo, k3, slip 1, k2-tog, psso, k3, yo, k1; repeat from * until 1 stitch remains, k1
Wrong side row: purl all stitches
psso="pass slipped stich over"
That's it! Just repeat these two rows until you are done. After a few rows you can knit and watch TV without making a mistake.
