These scarf knitting instructions might look complicated, but they're actually a cinch to knit. This intricately designed Lace Checkerboard Scarf is composed of basic yarn-overs, k2togs and slip-slip-knits - that's it. Even beginners can create an advanced-looking scarf by following along with this easy-to-understand pattern. Given the delicate nature of the design, we recommend knitting your own scarf in light pastels to emphasize the its unique ethereal qualities.

This looks like a pattern I would like. However it is impossible to print. It printed the pictures just fine but there was NO PATTERN. Tried it twice, even followed instructions listed below. All it did was waste 6 pages of paper and some ink.

Hi, jo8335win 1429470 and momzib 1832894. To access the pattern, please click the link that says "Click here for knitting pattern." A new window should open directing you to the pattern in full on the pattern designer's website. If you scroll to the bottom of the pattern, there is a link that says "Print article." Click that and a printer-friendly version will open. Hope this helps! --Editors of AllFreeKnitting
