I loved the long red lace scarf Amy Pond wears in season 5 of Dr. Who (“The Vampires of Venice” and “Vincent and the Doctor”). So I design something similar - long and lacy and flowing. I picked a lovely lace from Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns, added borders and repeats. This scarf is as fun to knit as it is to wear! Originally published in 2011. I know a lot more now in 2016, so I’ve edited and updated the pattern. Still free. Happy knitting!

Size: Approximately 7” (18 cm) wide by 60” (152 cm) long or to your desired length

Sample is knit in Knit Picks Stroll and used 450 yards or most of two 50 g balls.
Gauge: 24 sts and 28 rows = 4” in pattern
(Note: The gauge in pattern is looser than indicated on any fingering ball band to achieve the desired drape and lace feel of the scarf.)
Needles: US 3 - 6 (3.25 - 4.00 mm) (pick the size necessary for you to obtain desired drape and loose gauge)
