Lace Sampler Scarf Pattern





The Design

"A lacy taste test!"

In one generous scarf, we’ve served up three of our favorite lace patterns. Each motif syncs up beautifully where they transition. Great practice for newer lace knitters—a relaxing walk in the park for the more experienced. Follow our recipe or vary the amount of each stitch to taste.

We knit the Lace Sampler Scarf in fingering-weight Isager Alpaca 2.

This four-page pattern includes:

  • Color photography by Laura Gehring
  • Special Techniques
    • Swatching for Gauge & Fabric in Lace Pattern
  • Easy-to-read charts for Van Dyke, English Mesh, and Diagonal Lace pattern stitch
  • Instructions for blocking and finishing your piece

The Details

Approx. 1080 yds/988m fingering-weight yarn.
Shown in 4 skeins Isager Alpaca 2 (270 yds/247m each), Color E0.

US 6 (4.0mm) needles, or size(s) to obtain gauge.
Note: You may need a different needle size for each lace motif to achieve correct gauge. See Knitters' Notes.
2 stitch markers.
Darning needle to finish.
Blocking wires and T-pins.

Approx. 24 sts/33 rows = 4"/10cm in each lace motif, after blocking and resting.

Different lace motifs may yield different gauges on the same needle size. We recommend swatching in each lace pattern as instructed in the pattern. Give your swatch plenty of time after drying to rest. Often, lace has a tendency to bounce back.

When working with lace patterns, we like to use needles with long, tapered tips to help with decreases. And because it can be easy to miss an increase or decrease, we like to count our stitches often to make sure we're still on track.
