32 rows = 4” / 10 cm in chart pattern, blocked.

NOTES
– Instructions for the small scarf are given first, followed by directions for the large scarf in parentheses. If there is only one number, it applies to both sizes.

This pattern features an unusual increase that allowed me to create a true grid-work of lace with a yarn over centered at the point of each diamond.
