Lacy Petunia Scarf

This easy, one row repeat makes this wonderful lacy scarf! For such a simple pattern, it gives a stunning effect on any breezy spring day. 
I used one skein of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Petunia with size 10.5 needles. 
Co 36 sts, long tail. 
K2, *yo, k2tog, k2* repeat to last 2 sts, k2 
Repeat this row until you are almost out of yarn or to the desired length. 
Co loosely in knit. Weave in ends. 
I blocked this to open up the lace. It really increased the length and helped the edges to not curl in. 
My scarf is 8"x 75". 
This beautiful yarn looks great with this simple stitch pattern. It works up into a nice ombré effect as well. 
Enjoy this pattern!
Xoxo, Alyssa

  4. I think it needs 34 sts instead of 36. I tried with 36 sts but then I could not keep that(K2, *yo, k2tog, k2* repeat to last 2 sts, k2) pattern. it was mismatching. Then I realized it will work with 34 sts.

    1. It shouldn't work with 34 sts, since the repeat is a multiple of 4, and then there are two edge sts on each side. Maybe you're only knitting one of the edge sts on each side?

    2. Do you do the yo with the k2tog? With the comma, I've been doing k2, yarn over knit then k2tog, k2 and ended up with it only working with 37 stitches!

    3. Every yo is paired with a k2tog. I think you might be adding a knit stitch after the yo, but you should be doing the k2tog after the yo. This pattern works with a multiple of four, and then two edge stitches on either side, so the pattern should only work with a multiple of four.

  5. How do we adjust to make the scarf narrower, how many stitches should we cast on?

  7. I would like to knit this beautiful scarf and was wondering if you have a pattern of a hat to match this beautiful scarf?

  9. I had the same problem with co 36 stitches. I end up with a k2 and still have another 2 stitches to k2.

    1. You should have two stitches at either end for the border. At the end of each row you should have four knit stitches in a row because of the two stitches in the stitch pattern and then the two border stitches.
