Giant Lace Pattern Scarf

This lace pattern is to the nth power! You definitely won't need those 0000 size needles!

About 16 x 70 in. (40.5 x 178 cm)

• 450-135 Lion Brand Jiffy Yarn: Rust 8 Balls
• Knitting Needles - Size 19 [15 mm]

8 1/2 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Lace Stitch. 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.

Number of stitches will decrease from 34 stitches on Row 1 to 30 stitches on Row 2, then increase back to 34 stitches on Row 8.
