This simple lace pattern is easy to memorize and easy to work. When you reach the ruffles, the pattern grows seamlessly from lace to increases that create the ruffles. Choose a yarn with great drape, which allows the ruffles to hang beautifully.

Finished Measurements: 8 inches (20 cm) wide and 60 inches (152 cm) long
Yarn Requirements: 440 yards of laceweight yarn. Sample shown in Les Oiseaux Laceweight in ‘Artemesia’.
Needle Size: 3.25mm (US 3) straight or circular needles for flat knitting or size needed to obtain gauge

Stitches Used: knit, purl, k2tog, yo, knit through the back loop, ssk, m1, sl1 k2tog psso.
Other Details: This scarf is worked in two parts from the center outward. You begin with a provisional cast on, then work the first half toward the ruffle, binding off loosely. The provisional cast on will then be picked up and the second half worked toward the other end.

    Hello. I am a fun of your Flutter scarf pattern. I cannot seem to buy that anymore. Can you suggest a different yarn which would look similar to the yarn that you used? Thank you.

    A yarn like Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace is very similar in structure and drape. The silk in the Silky Alpaca Lace has very similar draping properties to the soy in the original yarn. Of course any laceweight yarn will work, and there are many really great examples of finished projects in a WIDE variety of yarn on Ravelry.

    I would like to purchase this pattern and use some madelinetosh tosh lace yarn. Would this yarn be too fine or ok?

    Madeleine Tosh Lace would be fine for this pattern.

    This is a gorgeous pattern. I made the scarf in Plymouth baby alpaca lace (doubled) and loved the way it turned out. I didn’t want the ruffles to curl up, so I made some 5 inch half-circles out of index cards, taped them into cone shapes, and blocked the ruffles over and under the cones. The finished ruffles look very graceful, and I’m glad I did the blocking that way.

    Would Bamboo Lace by Blue Heron work ?

    It’s not a yarn I’m very familiar with, but from the name I’m assuming it IS a lace weight, so yes. It will work.
