"Wouldn't it be great if you could find a lace knitting pattern that didn't involve purling? What if it also involved cables without a cable needle? And, only uses one hank of yarn?? I'd like to introduce you to the "No Purls About It" infinity scarf! This is the perfect project to take with you as you travel. It’s worked over a 4-row repeat and only uses knits (no purls!) and is reversible. The extra wraps of yarn during the knits on one of the rows offer a beautiful and simple lace design. “No purls about it” uses only one hank of fingering weight yarn and you can choose to work until you’re almost out of yarn or until you reach your desired length. This pattern is easily adaptable to be more narrow or wider simply by adding or subtracting in increments of six. The yarn that I chose to use is Knit Picks “Muse” fingering weight yarn. You can use any fingering weight yarn that you like. However, I chose this specific yarn because it’s soft, not slippery and has a tiny bit of “stickiness” to it. The yarn rarely split and the color is tonal. The “Muse” yarn offers pretty generous yardage, therefore allowing a nice, long scarf using only one hank of yarn. When wet blocking my scarf grew about 20 - 25% in length due to the lacy nature of the stitches and the natural fibers of the yarn. This pattern is an Easy project and has been tested – thank you to all my lovely testers!"
