This is a DIY scarf that is pretty in all respects: it’s pretty easy to make and also very easy on the eyes. To make this, you will need a rectangular strip of lace and embroidery thread. To get the pretty ruffly effect, you simply gather sections of the lace using the embroidery thread.
What if you knit instead of purl -- would you get shetland lace? This alternates R and L decreases for less diagonal pull in the lace. Rows 1 & 3 (WS): Purl Row 2: k1, *yo, k2tog; rep from * Row 4: *SSK, yo; rep from * across, end k1 Rep these 4 rows.
