There is such a demand for frilly scarves knitted with fancy scarf yarn! So much so that there is hardly any fancy yarn available for sale. So I was inspired to come up with this scarf pattern for a frilly scarf using "regular" yarn.
Needles: US 13 (9mm) 80cm circular and larger
Yarn: Any lace yarn, or sock yarn, or DK (#3) yarn works. Check the length listed on the ball. You will need about 150 to 200m depending on the yarn thickness.
Wear your scarf folded on half [see left] or simply drape it around your neck [below]. (I used a 100% merino lace weight yarn and US15 needles.)
Row 1: knit in the front, then in the back of each st. (You will now have double the amount of sts.)
Row 2 and 3: knit
Repeat rows 1 through 3 four more times. (If you want a wider frill repeat these rows more times, but remember you will need more yarn.)
Bind off in the following manner: *Knit 2 sts together (k2tog), k1. Slip the two sts from the right needle back to the left needle.* Repeat from * to the * until two sts remain. k2tog. Cut the yarn and weave in the ends.
Stretch out your scarf one bit at a time, pin it in place with metal T-pins and steam it. Let that area dry, then move onto the next section.
