As "lace" scarves go, I think this one was the easiest because the pattern is only worked from the right side. (The wrong side is a resting row. You just knit the knits and purl the purls as they present themselves.) It is a good first-time lacey scarve because of this feature.

I am glad you liked it, and thanks to all for your kind words!

I love it!! And knowing there is a resting row is very encouraging. I have been itching to try lace and this looks like the one to start with. And yay you for using yarn from your stash!

TRUE CONFESSIONS
I must confess, I tried a different lacy pattern before BRANCHING OUT...forget what pattern...and the other lacy pattern kicked my behind! It was worked from BOTH SIDES...aaargh...and it was not fun AT ALL. I need more experience in lace work. I especially forget those dern YarnOvers. It was really hard for me to keep track of where I was at with "real lace" work! It was like hacking through a thick, primitive, untouched-by-man South American jungle! I just couldn't ever see the path! I'd get all disoriented and discomboobulated!

So, I frogged (big relief)...the ultimate power move...and tried Branching Out because I could detect it's wrong side resting rows! Resting rows are like a homebase!

Anyway, I also started USING lifelines, installing them on the resting row at the end of a repeat.
