Completely inspired by The Yarn Harlot's Snowdrop Shawl, this is a relatively simple stitch, and a good starter for lace knitting. Be sure to use a good wool or wool blend (not superwash - it doesn't block well at all.) in a fine lace weight.
Cast on 71 sttiches using a long-tail cast on, and casting onto TWO needles held together as one (for extra thickness of the first row of stitches, and therefore more stretch when blocking)
When you have knit the scarf to the desired length, end with a row 8, then knit 1 row. Cast off LOOSELY. (Use an 8mm needle to do the cast off... again, this keeps the edge loose for blocking.)
