Here is the stitch pattern I used for Ariel (published in issue 1 of Yarn Forward, you can see it on the cover) and to make my mum’s scarf.

Each repeat is worked over 10 sts.

Row 1: (ssk, k8, yo)

Row 2: (p1, yo, p7, p2togb)
Row 3: (ssk, k6, yo, k2)

Row 4: (p3, yo, p5, p2togb)
Row 5: (ssk, k4, yo, k4)

Row 7: (ssk, k2, yo, k6)

Row 8: (p7, yo, p1, p2togb)
Row 9: (ssk, yo, k8)

Row 10: (p2tog, p8, yo)
Row 11: (k1, yo, k7, k2tog)

Row 12: (p2tog, p6, yo, p2)
Row 13: (k3, yo, k5, k2tog)

Row 14: (p2tog, p4, yo, p4)
Row 15: (k5, yo, k3, k2tog)

Row 16: (p2tog, p2, yo, p6)
Row 17: (k7, yo, k1, k2tog)

Row 18: (p2tog, yo, p8)
For my mum’s scarf I worked 3 repeats with a single slipped stitch selvage at both sides, so her scarf was 32 sts wide. I used about 100g of HipKnits Aran silk, and 5mm needles. I’ll try and get a photo of the finished scarf soon, although it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to convince my mum to model it.

Edit: oops! apparently I can’t translate a pattern from the round to flat knitting without forgetting to reverse the wrong side rows. Dear oh dear.

To answer a question asked in the comments about curling. Like all stocking st based patterns this pattern does curl a bit. The bias lacy pattern cuts down on this and blocking will also make a big difference. Yarn choice will also affect how much the scarf curls, you might want to steer clear of yarn with a lot of stretch, or that blocking doesn’t have much effect on.
