Knitting Pattern for Le Nuit Scarf

La Nuit

Knitted Ribbed Lace Scarf Pattern, by Karen T Morris (2008)

When I wanted an easy summer project, I devised this soft black scarf for dressy occasions. Its simple lace pattern is completely reversible and easy to memorize. I named it after a favorite book – either Black Beauty, which I loved reading in my childhood, or Night, Elie Weisel’s stunning, brief memoir.


SIZE: 5 inches wide (length is up to you)

1 skein soft, black yarn, DK or sport weight (I used Lion Brand Microspun)
knitting needles, size 8

GAUGE is not particularly important

Cast on 25 stitches. (I recommend the backward loop method)
Knit 6 rows of seed stitch (k1, p1, ending k1).
Lace row: k1, p1, k1, (p1, yo, k2tog) twice, p1, k1, (p1, yo, k2tog) once, p1, k1, (p1, yo, k2tog) twice, k1, p1, k1.
Repeat lace row until its as long as you want. End with 6 rows of seed stitch.

As a French and Dutch-speaking half Belgian, the title of this scarf just jumped out at me, because it is actually 'LA nuit', not 'le', since it is a feminine noun!
