Yarnover Cross Knit Scarf


Yarnover Cross Knit Scarf

Drop stitch scarves always have a lovely, light and lacy feel to them. This Yarnover Cross Knit Scarf is no different, and the airy effect is totally stunning. If the unusual, yet beautiful, color isn't enough to have you reaching for your knitting needles, the simplicity of the pattern will be. Once you have the basic pattern down, you can relax and continue to knit without having to worry about referring back to the pattern. You might just fall in love with the crossover technique, which creates a unique and unexpected lace on the scarf.

There is a problem with row 8. It does not work out correctly. There has to be a missing part of this pattern. Please let me know.
