{FREE} CHARM : Chunky Lace Infinity Scarf Knitting Pattern

Model Wearing a Super Bulky Lace Scarf
I’m working on the #21daysoflaceknitstitches and today’s pattern uses Day 16 : Baby Feather Diamond Lace Knit Stitch. I originally wanted to knit this scarf top down, which is a lot of CO STS. I tried and I failed. I bit off a little more than I could chew. I CO 141 STS and knitted 4 rows in about 4 hours, restarting too many times to count. Then I realized I already knew how to count to 141, 140 and 142, depending on how many stitches I was off by and then I stopped the insanity. I decided to knit it from side to side… this was much easier. By row 40 I was comfortable with the pattern and by row 80 I was confident in it. :) One day I might try knitting it top down again, but honestly, counting stitches isn’t my thing. I enjoy creating, casting-on, buying yarn, knitting and wearing. I like low-stress or no-stress patterns. :) That’s my thing and I’m sticking to it!

  • {Learn About Yarn Substitutes.}

Notes:

If you’re like me and new to lace knitting, I definitely recommend knitting a swatch using the Day 16 : Baby Feather Diamond Lace Knit Stitch to get familiar with it. This way you can see how it all comes together. It might help minimize frustration and/or frogging.

A lighter color yarn makes it easier to see the stitch definition.

To make it larger, CO in increments of 6+3.

  • Row 0 {WS}: WYIF S1PW *K1, P1* K1, WYIF S1PW

  • Row 8 {WS}: WYIF S1PW *P* WYIF S1PW
  • Repeat rows 1-8, 23 more times for a total of 24 repeats, or until desired length.
  • End on a row 8 and then BO in the K1 P1 pattern.
  • Wear as a scarf or sew the CO & BO edges together to wear as an infinity scarf.

    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.
