Gentleman's Knitted Silk Scarf from "The Ladies' Guide to Elegant Lace Patterns, Etc."

Knitted check stitch from 1884

Materials

The original pattern requires Old UK size 17/US 0000/metric 1.5mm needles and silk thread, however this scarf can be knit using any yarn and needles sized to suit. Just change the number of stitches cast on and knit for your desired length. My sample was knit with dk weight yarn on 4mm/US 6 needles.
