End on a row 8 and then BO in the K1, P1 pattern.

Wear as a scarf or sew the CO & BO edges to wear as an infinity scarf.

Weave in the ends.

No blocking necessary.

I didn’t block mine, as I’m not a fan of blocking, however a light block would help even out the stitches and a heavy block would bring out the lace.

This is a lovely chunky lace scarf (free) knitting pattern. A lace pattern that knits up quickly! 🥰

I originally wanted to knit this scarf length-wise, which is a lot of CO STS. I bit off a little more than I could chew.

I CO 141 STS and knitted 4 rows in about 4 hours. I restarting too many times to count. I quickly realized I already knew how to count to 141, 140 and 142, (I went to kindergarten). Stop the insanity! 🤯

I decided to knit it from side to side… that was much easier. (sigh)

By row 40 I was comfortable with the pattern and by row 80 I was confident in it. :)

I might try knitting it length-wise one day, but honestly counting stitches isn’t my thing. I enjoy creating, casting-on, buying yarn, knitting and wearing. I LOVE low-stress & no-stress patterns. :) That’s my thing and I’m sticking to it!

I know many of you enjoy working from a paper copy of your knitting pattern that’s why I offer a printer-friendly PDF completely ad-free on Etsy, Ravelry or Brome Fields.

That way you can have lifetime access to it and download it to any device and view it from anywhere, without ads (and the pattern might not be around forever).

The ads on this website make it possible for me to offer the patterns for free, that way you can try it before you buy it. :)
