Reversible Rib and Lace Scarf ~ Free Pattern!

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Even though I get excited about new toy, hat, sweater and blanket designs, nothing excites me more than a really great scarf. The Reversible Rib and Lace Scarf is easily my new favorite. I used 2 hanks of the new colorway, Skydiver #7520 (available this June!), to make this light and airy scarf. It is such a winning combination of color and stitch pattern and size. I am thrilled with the final result.

Here is some information you might like to know:


Finished measurements: 6 inches by 72 inches

Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), 2 hanks in Skydiver #7520

Needles: US size 9 or size to obtain gauge

Gauge: 4 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch



Yarn needle

Tape measure

Note: The stitch pattern used in this scarf is an adapted stitch pattern from Reversible Knitting – 50 Brand-New, Groundbreaking Stitch Patterns by Lynne Barr.

After blocking this scarf took on such fantastic stitch definition. You can see the front and back of the scarf in the photo above. By combining the lace pattern with the rib pattern you get a completely reversible and interesting design which is always appreciated for a scarf.

I like a long scarf that can be wrapped about your neck two or three times or worn a multitude of ways. I really can’t emphasize how light and airy the scarf feels. It will be perfect for cool summer nights or spring or fall or winter nights at that. This is a year-round project.

The stitch pattern is 6 rows and is easily memorized after a few times through.

The new Skydiver colorway is dreamy but any color in Sweater will make a gorgeous scarf.

I wish I could keep this one but it will be sent off to your favorite Spud & Chloë local yarn shops in trunk shows. I will have to make one for myself to keep. I’m adding it to my list right now.

    Just saw that a correction was made…thank heavens…I tried the first row and couldn’t figure out WHY it wasn’t working out for me… :)

      hm, apparently I’m as blind as night time, I can’t find the corrections. Souldn’t there be 30 CO stitches? I think the first row is missing a knight stitch. Am I right?

        I can’t find the correction to the Reversible Rib and Lace Scarf Pattern. Can you tell me where to find it? Or should there be 30 CO stitches? Thank you.

    I’d like to do this as a shawl. I think I could double or triple the width. Might be nice in a cotton acrylic blend for a fall or spring wrap.

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Most of whatever you assert happens to be astonishingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This particular piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. However there is just one point I am not too cozy with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your position, allow me observe exactly what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Well done.

    At this time it appears like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
