This lace knit scarf will be ideal for those cold and fresh spring days as well as for nippy weather. The scarf combines knit and purl stitches together with “long loops” adding an imitation of a bud stage. Even though the scarf looks complicated it can be done by a confident beginner. Experiment with yarn composition and make an elegant cotton summer scarf.

<> Circular needles 5.5 mm (US 9/UK5).

<> Lanoso Bebe Masal (4) –100% acrylic, 170 meter per 100 grams skein. Color of your choice. In total 1.5 skein.

Candy bud lace knit scarf size:

Length: 120 cm (47 in)

Width: 15 cm (6 in)

Gauge: 18 sts – 4 inches (10 cm)

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

sel s – selvage stitch: always slip the first stitch purlwise, work to the last stitch, purl the last stitch

st(s) – stitch(es)

bR1 – bud right: skip next 3 stitches and find a “road” of knit stitches, count down 4 stitches starting from the stitch on the needle. Insert the needle into the 4th st, pull the yarn and place it on the left-hand needle (you are going to have a long loop), knit together loop and next stitch.

bR2 and bR3 – work same and pull the yarn through the same stitch as you did for bR1 (the loop will be even longer this time)

Hi, It does not say as it is Turkish yarn, but i would say it is more Aran. Honestly, it doesn’t matter, you can use even cotton bulky yarn
