This pattern makes a beautiful reversible lace scarf that can be knitted in different wool yarns. An opportunity to use that fingering weight wool, soft alpaca, perhaps some of your sock yarn or sport weight yarn.
I used 45 g (~175 yards) of a superfine alpaca yarn. The scarf is about 13 x 150 cm (~5 x 60 inches) unblocked, and it's very stretchy in both width and length.
Needles: 6 mm (US 10).
Use bigger needles than the yarn usually calls for.
Gauge (not important): 8 sts = 5 cm (2 inches) in pattern.
Skill level: Easy(/Intermediate)
Note: This will make an (unblocked) width of about 13 cm (about 5 inches). To increase the width: add 4 or more stitches, dividable with 4. The scarf is very stretchy, but you could use a bigger/smaller needle size, thicker/thinner yarn or adjust the stitch count to get a different size.
K2tog= knit 2 stitches together
YO= Yarn over
Cast on 24 sts.
Knit 2 rows

If you make this scarf please let me know! I would love to see what you have created.
