Free Silk Knit Scarf Pattern

I received a gorgeous hank of Lion Brand Collection® Silk Yarn and have been just itching to use it. But I loved it so much I let it sit and wait for the perfect project. And I found it!! I learned a new knitting stitch and thought it would be awesome for showing off the beauty of this yarn and it did. I am so in love with my new scarf! And of course I wanted to shared my knit scarf pattern with you, my fiber loving friends. 🙂 I hope you love it as much as I do.

    Wow! That is so pretty! I am definitely going to try the double yarn over stitch because it makes it look so lacy and gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

    It’s a beautiful scarf shame I’m unable to make it while trying to read it. My mother tried for years to teach me and I never got it. Now if it was a picture pattern oh yes I can understand that way.

    I have been looking for this pattern! My babysitter taught me this when I was a little girl and I’ve always wanted to try it but couldn’t remember how or what it was called. Thank you for bringing this lost gem back to me!

    I found I didn`t have enough yarn to make scarf as long as it should be. Now I have to buy more expensive yarn. I followed the directions exactly and used the same yarn as you. What is the problem?

      Hmmm. It could be that our gauge is different or that I blocked it longer. Did you try blocking it yet?
