Mesh Scarf–a free pattern!

This is an oldie, but goodie that first appeared on our blog December, 2010.                       When we got in 001 185this luscious Lang cotton yarn for summer, I knew just what to make.  The hardest part was deciding which of the 9 yummy colorways to choose!!


Mesh Scarf

I used a size 10 needle.   Adjust your needle according to the thickness of your yarn and the openness desired.

Cast on 23 stitches (or any odd number).  I cast on 23 for the blue scarf and 29 for the cowl.  Finished measurements of the cowl are 42″ x 7″ .  I used 2 skeins of Lang Florida (88 yards per skein).

Row 1: K3, *k2tog, yo, repeat from * until 2 stitches remain, k2

Row 2: Purlmesh

Row 3: K2, *k2tog, yo, repeat from* until 3 stitches remain, k3

Row 4 and all even numbered rows: Purl

Repeat these 4 rows until desired length. Bind off and block to open up lace pattern.  If you are making the cowl/infinity scarf mattress stitch the two short ends together.

  1. Hi! I started working on this scarf this morning and am having a hard time making progress. When following the pattern above, one side of scarf looks like it has a wider border than the other. Is that normal? Will it even out once the scarf is completed and blocked? Thanks for your help!

    1. Hi Katlyn, The border might appear slightly wider,but not too much. It curls slightly even after blocking, giving it a slight rolled edge. Make sure you are starting one right side row with Knit 3 and ending that row with knit 2. Then start the following right side row with knit 2 and end it with knit 3. Your piece will start to slant if you are doing this right. You can see this in the photo of the blue scarf. Let me know if you need anything else! Martha
