Lacy Serpentine Scarf
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A62
Lacy Serpentine Scarf is knit side-to-side along its length in an amazingly easy lace pattern that looks more complicated than it really is.
The serpentine lace stitch has only three different patterned rows, so the rhythm is quickly learned and enjoyed.
To knit the scarf, you merely cast on for one side of the scarf, then work the easily memorized pattern in long rows. Before you know it, you've knit across the scarf and are ready to bind off for the other side.
Allow 400 yards of lace weight yarn for 71" wide by 9" long scarf, or desired width or length with yardage adjustment. 4¼ stitches/inch in pattern, size US 4 / 3.5 mm needles suggested. Charted and written stitch instructions.
