There are some lovely chevron stitches which used to be used for baby layettes. These lacey stitches are sometimes referred to as chevron layette stitches or chevron lace. I have been enjoying knitting this pattern with some 8 ply variegated woollen yarn. It will make a lovely scarf and has a nice scalloped edge. The reverse side is great too, very different to the right side but could also look good in a cowl.
Multiple of 10 + 9 stitches
Knit 3 rows before commencing pattern
Rows 1 & 3: * Wrn to make 1, K3, Slip 1, K2 tog, psso, K3 *

There are times when you need to knit something quickly where you want an open, lacy effect. Maybe a light summer neck scarflette or more glamorous evening shawl. For this scarf project I used a combination of 2 yarns knitted together the whole way. One was a plain 8ply acrylic and the other was a multi-coloured metallic train track fancy yarn that added a touch of glam. The finished effect was quite lovely as the oblique openwork stitch used has a natural tendency to slant and this creates sloped ends which drape beautifully.
