Easy Trellis Lace Scarf

We recently started carrying Malabrigo Rios, a light worsted yarn that is as squishy-soft as we’ve come to expect from Malabrigo, but is a plied yarn rather than their classic single. Liz asked me to take a skein home and come up with a free pattern. As you can imagine, I jumped at the chance to play with this lovely yarn!

Easy Trellis Lace Scarf
By Annika Barranti

I wanted to offer a pattern to show that lace doesn’t have to be difficult. This four-row pattern is easy to memorize, and very forgiving of mistakes. Can’t remember if row 1 or row 3 comes next? Just pick one. To substitute yarn, be sure to choose needles several sizes larger than recommended.

Finished measurements: Approx. 8″ x 60″

Malabrigo Rios – 1 skein
US size 10.5 needles

3 sts = 1 inch in pattern stitch. Gauge is not critical for this pattern.

Cast on 25 stitches using the long tail method. Knit one row.

Begin lace pattern:
Row 1: knit 1, *yo, k2tog* to end
Rows 2 & 4: purl
Row 3: *k2tog, yo* to last stitch, knit 1
Repeat these four rows until you reach the desired length, or until approximately one yard of yarn

Knit one row. Bind off.
Weave in ends and block to open up the lace pattern.


ETA: Pattern updated 7/30/2012.

    Could it be possible that rows 2 & 4 are purl and not knit?

    Yes! You’re right, I’m going to edit the pattern right now. Sorry for the belated reply. I added this scarf to my knitting bag to test it, and promptly forgot about it!

    A wonderful pattern! I’ve enjoyed making many scarves as gifts
    from thus pattern. One tip to help it lay flat on the edges is a surrounding
    border of ‘ knitt 5 ‘, that will let it lay flat :)
    Thank you!
