The Best Light & Lacy Knit Scarf Patterns: 7 Free Scarf Patterns for You

"Looks like a nice project, however the patterns from this website that are featured are frequently missing so much essential information, that some of them are useless. The website for the yarn has to be translated and the translation to english is not great, so proves to be more than a little frustrating."
"There is no "book" you must click on the link to see the pattern on the page it links to. After you get to the page, you need to scroll down about 1/3 of the page to find the written pattern there. Hope this helps, happy knitting."
"Sorry, I don't know of a video for that stitch pattern. I did make this project about 10 or so years ago and I remember that it did not really look like the picture until it was completed, while it was on the needles it looked like it wasn't lining up. Is it possible that is what is happening with you?"
"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"

The Purple Knit Super Scarf makes a fashion statement. This gorgeous knit scarf is created with faux woven stitch and both the back and front are identical. The free knitting pattern is perfect for intermediate knitters who want to try their hand at adding pom poms and tassels to their oversized scarf. The soft lilac color is quite pleasing to the eye and looks striking against a variety of outfits. Plus, since this knitting pattern is reversible, you don't need to worry about it draping a certain way. Instead, you can just throw it on and go. The ends of the scarf are really the shining stars, because they add some visual interest you typically don't see when it comes to scarf knitting patterns.

Not only is it a favourite length and a great style, but the model is sporting one of my favourite styles of hat -- how can I resist? I love the length and I love the width. It would add so much to an outfit, even warmth. Thinking of knitting it in charcoal to go with a hat I added to the collection recently (love end of winter sales), and in a deep blue for a friend for next winter... the pom poms and tassles together add a delightful flair

This is amazingly fun. I've seen tassels and I've seen poms but never the two together in such an adorable way. I might size this down a little bit and make it for a couple little girls who are very special to me. It's adorable!

This is a great super scarf pattern! I was immediately struck by the pompoms and tassels on the bottom - what a stylish embellishment. The lilac color is pretty but I'm sure it would look good in any solid color. You could also try contrasting or complimentary color pompoms and tassels on the ends.

Pom-poms AND tassels!!!??? That's an overdose of awesomeness and going right onto a tote bag project I am currently working on. Thanks for the great idea.
