The “Emmentaler Scarf” - a knitting pattern for a lacy scarf - got its name because of those little holes that remind of Swiss cheese. In the wide sense of the word you can call it a lace scarf, although the wholes are done in a very special way that purists wouldn’t call lace. However, the result is a lacy scarf. It is knitted using fingering weight sock yarn which makes the finished result a very lightweight scarf to be worn in spring or fall. Hints on how to customize the scarf for the use of other yarn weight are in the pattern.
The pattern is not one that I would recommend for knitting beginners. Although not difficult to knit, it needs a bit of attention. It is a written pattern, includes a chart for the stitch pattern and a photo tutorial to show how the little holes are done.
The sample shown in the pictures was made out of Four Seasons Gründl Hot Socks Print, which is a commonly used self-striping sock yarn in my part of the world. Any other fingering weight yarn will do.

The pattern is available in English and in German.
Please read below for more details.

There are those little round holes in it, just like in the tasty Swiss cheese. Those that weigh so little.

Other than that, this is a very easy to knit scarf which can be made out of a variety of yarns.The instructions are for the use of fingering weight yarn. Options for using other yarns are in the pattern.
The pattern is written and includes a chart. A photo tutorial shows how to work the special stitch used to create the holes.

Emmentaler Scarf is also available as part of the Emmental ebook which also includes the Emmentaler Hat and the Emmentaler Fingerless Gloves.
