A couple of months ago I was making a scarf for my sister. My friend Clara admired it ~ so I decided to make one for her too as a surprise gift! It is made with cotton yarn in a lovely raspberry colour.

It's totally reversible, and it drapes beautifully.
CLARA'S COTTON SCARF
Using 5mm needles, cast on 25sts (or any odd number of sts)
1st Row: S1, knit to end of the row
Repeat this row 4 times more
6th Row (Eyelet Row): s1, k1, * k2tog, yrn, repeat from * to last 3sts, k3
Work 1st Row 6 times
Pattern Repeat ~
** Work eyelet row
Work 1st Row 6 times **
Repeat these 7 rows until the scarf is the length required
I worked until I had almost used 2 x 50g balls
Finish by casting off on the last row of a pattern repeat.
Please note: as you follow the instructions you will find that the eyelet pattern is worked on alternate right & wrong sides ~ this makes the scarf reversible
