Create a one-of-a-kind accessory with this Magic Lace Knit Scarf. This scarf pattern shows you how to knit a scarf using a lace knitting technique that guarantees a random pattern, which makes creating the scarf fun and exciting. Though it doesn't look like much when you bind off, once you block the scarf it expands and loops in a gorgeous light and airy way that makes this a great scarf pattern for summer. If you love lace knitting patterns, this is a method you will want to use over and over again on all sorts of projects.

NOTE that this is not a pattern in the classic sense with detailed stitch by stitch and row by row sequences, but a set of instructions and tips that allow you to knit a scarf and achieve a similar result. What do you need? The ability to count and the stamina to go on knitting a piece even though it will look really strange and crumpled while you're knitting it.

I would love to see a shawl in this stitch pattern.

This is not your typical scarf pattern. In fact, it's not a pattern at all. It's all up to you how you would like it to look by repeating stitches randomly. The designer points out that blocking the scarf will really open up the lace and make it look nice.

I saved the pattern but there really is not a pattern. I think I will go to my book of different stitches and work from there. This pattern is not for a beginner. It is not boring but you do have to concentrate to make sure you have the right number of stitches. I like the end result because I like lacy scarfs.

This is certainly an intriguing scarf to knit. Its composed of yo increases and corresponding decreases with fine yarn and a bit larger needles. I practiced this with some scrap yarn and while I didn't block it I stretched my square until I could see how the holes would appear. I like it a lot and have a bunch of very fine mohair that will probably work well with these instructions.
