Free Pattern: Easy-Eyes for carry-around-knitting

By Alison Hyde

This is the perfect scarf for peaceful knitting. The stitch pattern is so simple, you’ll likely memorize it even before you start knitting.

Cast on an odd number of stitches in a yarn and needle size that you like together. The sample shown here and on my website, was made with Soft Baby from Rowan. I cast on 13 stitches using size 11 (6.5 mm) needles. I made a second version in a variegated color of Suri Dream from Knit Picks that shows the versatility of this easy pattern, but unfortunately blogger ate the only photo.

Free Pattern: Easy-Eyes for carry-around-knitting 2Exact guage is not important, but the fabric should be light and airy, not tight and stiff.

Row 1 and all wrong side rows: Purl.

Row 2: *K2tog, yo, rep from * across; end k1.

Row 4: K1, *yo, ssk, rep from * to end of row.

Bind off loosely and block to open up the lace.

    How do I get a copy of this FREE pattern? It won’t print! Thanks, Margaret

  3. Thanks for this pattern.
    I have stopped knitting due to arthritis in wrist and thumb. My daughter asked me to knit a scarf for her 2year old and I thought it would start me off again without too much pain. I dislike plain garter or miss stitch but this looks so fancy yet so easy. I cannot wait intil tomorrow when I will start.

  4. Thank you for this easy pattern, just what I need today.
