Scarf Pattern Notes

This scarf is started with a sc foundation row for the entire length of the scarf. Then the body of the scarf is worked and after that 2 rows of broomstick lace are applied on each long side of the scarf.
Scarf length may be adjusted by adding or subtracting multiples of 10 from the sc foundation row.
The dowel needed for the broomstick lace does not have to be long enough to accommodate all sts. As long as the newest lps can be put on, it is all right if the older lps fall off of the other end of the dowel.
