Lace doesn’t have to be delicate—it can be bold and rugged enough to wear every day. The balance between the picot eyelet base and the knitted-on garter-stitch lace edging of this scarf creates a gently curved crescent that doesn’t need blocking, and the combination of worsted-weight tweed yarn and the pretty lace motif gives it rustic appeal.

Yarn Studio Donegal Soft Marl (100% merino wool; 210 yd [192 m]/3½ oz [100 g]); #9588 Oatmeal, 2 skeins. Distributed by Kokomo Yarns.
Needles Size 8 (5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions Stitch marker (m); tapestry needle.
Gauge 17½ sts and 24 rows = about 4" (10 cm) in Grand Picot Eyelet patt, not blocked.
Finished Size About 55½" (141 cm) long and 7¼" (18.5 cm) wide at point of lace edge.

* Scarf is constructed by knitting an edging onto a narrow base strip. The strip pattern is worked over an odd number of rows, which makes it reversible.
* Because the garter-stitch fabric does not curl and the scarf naturally forms a gentle curve, it is not necessary to block it.
