This scarf is reversible lace. There are no resting rows as are found in many other lace patterns, you will work yarnovers and decreases in every row. I think of it as ‘in the Shetland Style.’

The pattern also includes both the complete written out instructions and fully charted directions.

Gauge is not critical as long as you are happy with the fabric density and drape. To test this, cast on 19 and work in the lace ground with borders for 30 rows:
Rows 1 – 4 K 1, (p 1, k 1) 9 times across.
Rows 5 – 26 K 1, p 1, k 1, (yo, k2tog) 7 times, p 1, k 1.
Rows 27 – 30 K 1, (p 1, k 1) 9 times across.
Unblocked, the piece should measure about 4” long by about 5 1/2” high; blocked, it should be about 6” square. Adjust needle size to achieve either this gauge or a fabric that pleases you more.
When knit to gauge as directed, the finished size of your scarf will be in the vicinity of 9” x 84”, after blocking.

This is a scarf and while gauge isn’t crucial to how the garment fits, it will affect yarn usage. Be sure to have at least 300 yards of the same dye lot on hand before you begin, especially if you got a denser fabric.
