Mohair Diamond Eyelet Scarf

This is the first scarf that I attempted to knit lace. It's a simple pattern to follow and good for beginners who want to try knitting something other than purl and knit patterns.

I used 8-ply mohair and 4mm knitting needles.

Pattern is below:

Cast on 36 stitches. Knit garter for 6 rows.

Row 1:Knit.
Row 2:K3, P30, K3
Row 3:Knit
Row 4:K3, P30, K3
Row 5:K7, *yo, ssk, k8, rep*, yo, ssk, k7.
Row 6:K3, P30, K3
Row 7:K5, *k2 tog, yo, k, yo, ssk, k5, rep*, k2tog, yo, k, yo, ssk, k5
Row 8:K3, P30, K3
Row 9: Same as Row 5
Row 10: K3, P30, K3
Row 11: Knit.
Row 12: K3, P30, K3
Row 13: K12, yo, ssk, k8, yo, ssk, k12
Row 14: K3, P30, K3
Row 15: K10, *k2 tog, yo, k, yo, ssk*, k5, rep* to *, k11
Row 16: K3, P30, K3
Row 17: Same as Row 13
Row 18: K3, P30, K3

Repeat pattern until scarf is desired length. Knit 6 rows garter. Cast off.

This produces a scarf with the diamond eyelet pattern with a border of garter stitch to prevent curling.

Block scarf.

For the fringe, I threaded translucent beads at various levels. Unfortunately, it hasn't shown up well in the picture.

What a lovely scarf. I think you've inspired me to have a shot at knitting lace. Keep up the study. I live in Melbourne too. Love a good bit of dentistry.

I'm still fairly new to knitting and this pattern looked like a nice change.

I'm not sure if I've done it wrong but looking at the pattern, I think there's a stitch missing from Row 7.
It only adds to 35.

This is a great pattern but I'm coming up 3 short on row 5 and I am really confused about what is going wrong

Hi: I just started this scarf and I too am coming up with 35 stitches on row 5, using the pattern as shown. Is there a typo for the no. of stitches to cast on? Don't want to rip it out - help!

The end of row 7 should be K6, not K5. For comparison, it's the middle of the diamond, so it's like row 15, where the first bit is K10 and the last is K11.

Hi I am used to knitting only knit and purl scarves and I was trying out your nice pattern but I can't figure out the instructions for rows 5 and 7 since it is not clear which stitches I need to repeat....could you please clarify this?

Thanks in advance.
