Pink Feather and Fan Summer Lace Scarf

This is a sport-weight scarf with a four-row lace repeat.

Actually, only one of those rows is a pattern row, which makes this a great lace scarf pattern for beginners.

    1. Hi Susan!
      For this pattern I used Lantern Moon needles, which are 10″ long. The stitches were kind of crammed on there, as I remember, but it wasn’t a problem. I hope this helps!
