Loom Knit | Quick Lace Scarf

by Kristen Mangus

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Now you can drape yourself with diamonds and it will only cost you one skein of yarn.  This beautiful scarf is embellished with a trellis of lace diamonds. The seed stitch border grounds the lacy stockinette diamonds giving you a scarf that’s both cozy and delicate.

The large diamonds that run along the center of this scarf are half stockinette and half lace. Breaking up the texture of the diamonds gives this scarf as eye-catching design. It also gives the diamonds a firmer structure so it holds it shape better.

If you’ve never tried loom knitting lace this Easy+ pattern is simple to learn and follow. I’ve included both row by row instructions and a lace knitting chart as part of the pattern.

Following a chart is an excellent way to visualize exactly where you are in the pattern. It also lets you see how the pattern will look as you knit. In the video tutorial I’ll show how to loom knit the entire pattern including following the chart. I’m excited to get started. How about you?

GAUGE

7.5 sts x 10 rows in 2” (5 cm) in lace stitch pattern

SKILL LEVEL

Easy+

MEASUREMENTS

5″ x 63″ (12 cm x 160 cm)

NOTES

Cast on from left to right to ensure that you are able to start the lace chart correctly.  You should begin Row 1 of the lace section in the bottom right-hand corner of the chart. Both reading the chart and knitting the row from right to left.  This will make it easier for you to follow the chart and video.

Adjusting the length of your scarf: Each 20 row repeat of the lace will give you 4 inches (10 cm) in length. This scarf is 63″ and is knit using 15 repeats of the lace stitch pattern. If you want to make it longer adding 1 repeat will give you a 67″ scarf and adding 2 repeats will make it a generous 71″. Just remember that you will need an extra skein of yarn to increase the length.

  1. Joann,

    Thanks for sharing this with your viewers. As someone new to looming, is there a way to make the scarf wider. If so, how many pegs would I need on the loom?

    Thanks
    Carolyn

  2. I would be nice to know how to make both ends look nice. Knowing how to bind off as well with this pattern.

  3. Where did you get your stitch markers?

  4. You have very good videos.

  5. If I wanted to make this into a cowl, instead of a scarf…how would you suggest changing it? Also, do you think a #5 velvet type of yarn work for this pattern?

  6. Thank you! I really like the scarf 😍

  7. Thank you!

  8. I bought the pdf for the lace scarf pattern.
    The pattern uses Red Heart chic sheep weight. Sadly
    I can’t use wool yarn. Can you give me some suggestions on a good yarn to use?
    It’s a beautiful scarf.

  9. I cannot find the link to download this pattern.
    Can you tell me where it is.

    • Hi Barbara. There is a link to purchase a downloadable PDF of the pattern from Ravelry.com. It is a small button that says “buy now” just before the Materials list for the pattern. I hope this helps!

  10. Beautiful scarf.
