Gull Lace Second Attempt

As you know I failed at the February Fitted Pullover – my lace looked very moth eaten, but I was determined to master the lace pattern.

I decided in the round was just too complicated at this stage – I just wanted a simple flat pattern – a scarf!

This is a scarf of my own design (it’s a scarf not too hard!).

I’ve got a border of garter stitch and then four repeats of the gull lace pattern.

For the more pattern minded of you …

 CO 38 stitches

Knit five rows

K5, *K1, K2tog, YO, K1, KO, SSK, K1 , repeat until there are 5 stitches left, knit these remaining stitches

K5, P until there are 5 stitches left, knit the remaining stitches

K5, *K2tog, YO, K3, YO, SSK, repeat until there are 5 stitches left, knit these remaining stitches

K5, P until there are 5 stitches left, knit the remaining stitches

Repeat the previous four rows until the scarf is the desired length

Knit five rows

Cast off.

K2tog is knit two stitches together 

YO is Yarn Over.

SSK is Slip Slip Knit

 and tension is irrelevant (it’s a scarf!). If you use chunkier yarn, then have less lace repeats and more repeats for a lighter weight yarn.
