This sideways garter stitch scarf has a simple lace edging that is worked as you knit the body. The sample is knit with fingering weight yarn, but you can knit this pattern with almost any yarn at any gauge. The pattern includes both specific instructions for the fingering weight version, and general instructions for all other versions.

Use any smooth yarn that will show the lace edging. Do not use anything too fluffy or bumpy, as that will obscure the pattern. The amount of yarn you will need will vary, depending on the weight of the yarn and the needle size used, and how long and wide you would like your finished scarf to be. You will probably want at least 300 – 400 yards for sportweight and dk weight yarn and 200 – 300 yards for worsted and bulky weight yarn.

Use a needle a couple of sizes larger than recommended for your yarn to achieve a nice open lace edging.
