Lace Scarf and Stole Patterns for Knitting

HeartStrings Collection of knitting patterns for lace scarves, beaded scarves and stoles

Picture yourself knitting and wearing an elegant knitted lace scarf or lace stole you created, and enjoying the admiring looks of everyone. Even the simplest lace knitting patterns look impressive and invite awe.

When you knit HeartStrings patterns, the lace just flows off the needles because these lace scarves, beaded scarves and shawls are all designed for knitting in one piece with no seams to sew or graft. And because you use relatively large needles for these lace scarf patterns, the lace knitting goes more quickly than you might expect. At the finale, there is always a magic moment when the lace is blocked out to show all of its airy beauty.

Since exact gauge for most lace knitting is not terribly important, most of these patterns work up equally well in a variety of yarn weights. Sizes and yardage are given as a guideline. When choosing a yarn weight for your lace knitting project, you can expect a finer yarn like lace weight to result in a more gossamer look, and a heavier yarn to produce a denser lace.

Several of these lace knitting patterns incorporate beads. If you prefer to omit them, that's fine. It will not affect the structure or usability of the item.

For even more scarf-like items to knit and wear, you can also visit the Neck and Up Collections for Moebius Infinity Loops, Smoke Rings Collars and Neck Warmers.
