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.
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
SIZE: 5 inches wide (length is up to you)

Cast on 25 stitches. (I recommend the backward loop method)

Repeat lace row until its as long as you want. End with 6 rows of seed stitch.
