Every wardrobe needs a classic scarf. This one exudes elegance and style, with a crisp textural pattern running along the length of the scarf. The result is slimming and comfortable to wear. The stitch pattern is reversible so either side can be on show and the scarf features thin bands of garter stitch at the ends for extra detailing.
This versatile pattern can be worked in a variety of yarns so that a whole range of scarves can be produced from just one pattern.
The knitting is very straightforward making this a good project to work on while travelling or in the evening. It would also make a good "next" project for a beginning knitter wishing to develop their pattern skills.
