The Arabella Scarf is a great beginner project. It has a repeating pattern where you can make it as long, or as short, as you would like. The simple repeating pattern creates a delicate, but durable, lace. Depending upon your yarn choice, it could be a shimmery scarf suitable for a night out on the town, or a cozy casual piece.
The recommended gauge for this pattern pattern is 6 rows of 5 stocking stitches equals one inch. And, you’ll need US 5 (3.75) needles. To make a scarf 9 inches wide and 60 inches long, you’ll need about 876 yards of fingerling weight yarn.
