This is a lovely lacy, lightweight scarf pattern. It makes me think of spring or fall, when you want a light scarf for chilly days, not a heavy winter one. It would be pretty in a pastel color for spring or an earth tone like pumpkin, sage, or light brown for fall.

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.

If all else fails, you can: Rt. click and block the directions. Then open a new window and click on copy. The pattern I copied was from Purl Bee. Good Luck. From: Daisy near Dallas

I just finished knitting this scarf in a soft pale yellow. It is stunning. Love these patterns.

I am going to take this pattern back to my new knitters class and let them have a go with this one! It is beautiful, and I think they will really enjoy the pattern too and learn a lot with this one! Ya Ha! Looks like fun to me for my knitting class at church. Thanks! naniestaycee

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
