Jug Band

Description

A fine gauge scarf, inspired by the motifs seen on printed bandanas. This summery layer can be tucked into a purse or tote and used to tame hair while boating, bike riding, or cruising with the top down. It does double duty by dressing up a casual outfit for dinner after a day of summer fun or to chase off the chill afterward. This easy-to-knit piece is comprised of simple eyelet motifs with wrong side rows entirely worked in purl—it makes excellent knitting for spectator sports, the beach, or a first lace project.
