Orchid Lace Scarf pattern, by Anne Hanson of Knitspot.
This fine, semi-sheer scarf is knit in two pieces from the hem to the center back, then grafted together.
Knit in finer yarn on smaller needles it will be more sheer and narrower, while larger needles and heavier yarn will produce a wider, denser piece.
Scarf may be shortened or lengthened by subtracting or adding repeats of the main body section (see instructions); changing each half by one pattern repeat will result in a 6? overall difference in length after blocking.

- 11 in. W x 64 in. long, blocked
