Quick Links

With this simple lace scarf pattern, you will be able to make yourself a beautiful new scarf and show off your new knitting skills!

This pattern is for a narrow scarf knitted in a simple panel lace rib. I knitted my scarf using a teal green 8 ply pure wool and am very pleased with the result.

Although more 'difficult' than a Garter Stitch Scarf it is still easy enough for most beginners to make!

This scarf is approximately 200 cm long without the fringe and 12 cm wide.


To make this scarf you will need approximately 300 metres of 8 ply yarn. If you are using 100 percent pure wool that equates to approximately 3 x 50gm balls of 8 ply wool.

If you decide to use a wool blend or an acrylic the number of balls will be reduced as these types of wool weigh much less than pure wool.

Needles and Extras

For this Simple Lace Scarf you will need a pair of 5.00 mm single pointed needles (or the size required to give you the correct tension.


The tension for this scarf is 22 stitches and 27 rows for a 10 cm square.

Finishing Your Simple Lace Scarf

If you are happy with your scarf the way it is, then you have finished your scarf.

But if you would like to add a special touch you can add a fringe, although personally, I don't think this particular scarf needs a fringe.  However if you do want to add a fringe, here are the instructions:

Cut 12cm lengths of yarn. Separate out four strands and fold in half.

Using a crochet hook to pull the loop through the knitted fabric and then threading the ends through the loop to form a knot. Repeat along both edges of the scarf.
