A lace stitch makes this little scarf light and airy and gives your outfit and finished look.

• 485-108 Lion Brand LB Collection Wool Stainless Steel: Dusty Blue

23 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with 2 strands of yarn held together. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
