Choose a yarn that will wear comfortably against your bare neck. I used Classic Elite Lush, a smooth four-ply blend of angora and wool that knits up at 4.5 sts per inch on US 8 needles. One 123-yard skein will produce the scarf you see here, which measures 4 x 45 inches.
The yarn's recommended needle size is US 8, but I wanted the stitches to have plenty of room so I bumped my needle size up to US 9. Fortunately you don't need to be too obsessed with gauge since this will only wrap around your neck.
Cast on 22 stitches and knit 2 rows.
Now you're ready to begin the lace pattern, which is as follows.
Row 1: (RS): K all sts.
Row 2: K2, p18, k2. (Those 2 border stitches on either end will always be knit in garter stitch—their role is to keep your fabric from curling.)
Row 3: K2, (K2Tog) 3 times, (YO,K1) 6 times, (K2Tog) 3 times, k2.
Row 4: K all sts.
Repeat rows 1 through 4 until you've reached your desired scarf length or run out of yarn, whichever comes first. End by completing Row 4, and then knit 1 more row and bind off all sts.
Finishing: Darn in any ends and fill a sink with lukewarm water and add a gentle detergent (such as Eucalan or Soak). Drop your scarf into the water and gently squeeze it until the water has fully saturated the fibers. If using Eucalan or Soak, you can skip any rinse. Otherwise, gather the scarf together, lift it out of the sink, drain the water, re-fill it with lukewarm water, lower the scarf back in the water, and gently squeeze. Repeat this process until the rinse water runs clear. Then blot the scarf dry in a towel and lay it out to shape. If you're using a finer, lace-weight yarn you'll want to use pins to help open up the fabric to its desired shape.
