On this reversible garter stitch scarf, lace daisies drift down, reminding me of artist Andy Goldsworthy’s floating flowers. Simple increases and decreases slant the stitches and highlight the beauty of semi-solid color yarns on this asymmetrical shallow triangle.

Beginning with a few stitches at one end, the scarf increases every other row to a cast-off edge that forms the triangle’s slightly shorter second side. The lace repeats over 6 stitches and 12 rows, so it is easy to memorize. Since the scarf can be cast off at the end of any 12-row repeat, it also is easy to customize the size.

Designed for fingering weight yarns, it also can be knit in a variety of lace and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.
