So named, because I knitted the scarf in one weekend.
IMHO this stitch pattern is ideal for a scarf. It is completely reversible and easy to work since there are no purl stitches.
This means it works up fast, no time to get bored with it Smiley

Close Up:

Size: Any size you want. Mine is 15 x 153 cm (6 x 60")

Gauge: don't know, didn't measure:)

70g / about 2.5 oz Wolle Rdel Soft-Merino
6 mm / US 10 needles

- The yarn calls for 4 - 5 mm / US 6 - 8 needles. So if you substitute another yarn, use larger needles than you normally would to get the lacy effect.

Stitch Pattern:


CO 22 sts (or any even number)

Row 1: k1, *yo, k2tog* to last st, k1
Repeat row 1 until the scarf is as long as you want or you almost run out of yarn Smiley

BO in pattern, i.e. make the yo and k2tog as before and treat them as normal sts when binding off.

Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Block to open up the lace or don't and keep the squishy look.

Nice job, love the color.  I am defiantly going to try this.  I was just practicing this same stitch in MESH STITCH pattern for a sampler scarf.  Mine is with a two stitch border:
Row 1: K2, *yo, k2tog, rep from *, K2
Row 2: K2, purl, K2
Row 3: K2, *skp, YO, rep from *, K2
Row 4: K2, purl, K2

I like how yours has no purls.
Thanks for sharing
I may not be perfect, but I'm so close it's almost eerie.

This is the same pattern I saw at the ritzy LYS a few days ago.
I usually get my yarn from Joann's, but I wanted something really special for a gift. I ended up spending $17.00 for a tiny, little ball of yarn. I almost started hyperventilating while I paid for it, so it better come out amazing.

Your scarf is beautiful! I appreciate seeing the before and after blocking pictures. Without those I may have gotten really nervous if it was knitting up all squishy. Thanks!
