The relaxing rhythm of stockinette stitch creates a simple, supple fabric—the perfect canvas to play with degrees of sheerness. Adding a feminine eyelet lace edge keeps the knitting interesting. With long tapered ends, this scarf’s shape lies somewhere between half moon and triangle. Started at the top edge, the knitting gets faster and faster as you go!

Make a delicate, sheer Demi Lune Scarf with an airy lace-weight yarn, like Rowan Kidsilk Haze. For more drape and less sheerness, pair a fingering-weight yarn with a lace-weight yarn, like Shibui’s Reed with Silk Cloud.
