No need to break out the disco music to knit this design, the world go-go is derived from the french expression a gogo, meaning "in abundance galore." This in turn, is derived from the ancient french word la gogue, connoting happiness and joy. This pattern certainly has an abundance of double yarn overs, hopefully they will bring you knitting joy.
This pattern features an easily memorized lace stitch that creates an attractive scalloped edge, which works particularly well with lightly variegated yarns. There is lace patterning on every row, but the purl rows only have basic yarn over and purl 2 together, no frustrating purl 3 through the back loop.Pattern includes full directions for both the scarf (9.5" wide) and the stole (20" wide"). Either one can be worked to whatever length you prefer.
This begins with the bottom border, stitches are then picked up for the body of the shawl, and the top border is knit on as you go, for a seamless scarf with matching borders.
Pattern includes charts and line by line directions as well as stitch count totals for every row.
