PS, note that the lace will allow the scarf to stretch considerably with wearing, so do feel free to work it a little shorter than you might, to accommodate this.


Elizabeth wrote, "I am somewhat stymied by the last two lines of the directions. BO 19 sts in K1, P1 rib, working first 2 sts as K2tog. Work last st tog with rem st from holder, and BO. Weave in ends, and block lightly. I'm understanding it to mean Bind off 19 sts in K1 P1 rib... and then at the end it says ...Bind off. Weave in ends and block lightly. Bind off twice? I'm so confused. Can you help?"

The last part of the instructions are a little different from usual because of the sideways lace pieces at the ends. The first bind-off ("BO 19") will be along the sideways piece that you are attaching to the main scarf. (Don’t forget that the first 2 sts on the border should be worked as K2tog or you will have 20 sts. I find that this first K2tog makes the edging lie more smoothly.)

After you work the last st on the border together with the last st on the holder, you will be left with 1 st on the needle, which is the second instruction to bind-off.
