Quick Lacy Weekend Scarf Free Knitting Pattern

This knitting project is quick, lacy and fairly easy. I will call it the Weekend Scarf. You know….because it’s a good knitting project for the weekend….

While I absolutely love nupps, I can totally understand you may not be too keen on it. So, you can replace all nupp stitches with knit stitch if you want. However, I must say, you will miss out on the pattern this way.

If you like this scarf then you might like my Solitaire Shawl. (with no nupps whatsoever)


You’ll need:

  • 150g / 573 yards fine yarn – I used DROPS Baby Merino
  • Pair of long needles 3mm / US 3

Abbreviations: see below on chart key
