A Reversible lace pattern suitable for scarves amongst other things...

It's been brought to my attention by a fellow Ravelryite that the reversible scarf pattern I showed in the post of June 25th has disappeared off the web! This was a free pattern (the lace pattern taken from a stitch pattern directory) so I think it no breach of copyright to put the pattern repeat on here but if anyone knows differently then please let me know and I'll remove it.


The Stitch pattern is a repeat of 12 stitches and 9 rows.
There was a border of 2 rows of garter stitch at both ends and a selvedge of 2 knit stitches at the beginning and end of each row to prevent the edges rolling.

Using 4mm ( or American size #6 ) needles, cast on 52 st. (the original pattern was wrong here and said 54st!)
Knit 2 rows.
Begin pattern:
Row 1: K2, *yo, K2tog, rep from * to last 2 st, end with K2st.
Rows 2 and 4: K2, P to last 2 st and K2.
Row 3: KNit all st.
Row 5 and 8: K2, *sl1, K2tog, PSSO; K4, yo, K1, yo, K4, rpt from * to last 2 st and K2.
Rows 6, 7 and 9: K2, *P3tog.,P4, yo, P1, yo, P4 rpt from * to last 2 st - K2.
Rpt these 9 rows until the scarf is the desired length,
Knit the last 2 rows and then cast off (or bind off if you insist on wanting US terms)

Hope this works for you.

I cast on 40 st (but any repeat of 12 + 4 will do) and my scarf was 36" before blocking, 48" afterwards.

Thanks for this Terri, I was looking for the pattern too and was miffed to see it not there.. and I have my spinning near enough sorted.. haven't tried plying yet and this pattern just might be my first project if I get a workable yarn :)

Hope all is well with you all xxx
