A neat, easy to work stitch pattern keeps things moving on this scarf or cowl in two sizes (S/L) for men and women. The tailored design appears similar (but not exactly the same) on the reverse side to increase its appeal and versatility. Scarf is knit flat and cowl is knit in the round; the simplicity of the stitch work makes this a great beginning lace project or last minute gift.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
