This fun-to-knit, unisex scarf in two sizes (petite/tall) will appeal to any friend or family member who loves a rugged, outdoorsy look. The fabric design is worked in larger sections of contrasting texture to make great use of a marled or speckled yarn and of course, a solid or heathered shade as well. The yummy, two-tone cable adds just a bit more depth and interest. This is easy knitting at its best—almost every row of the pattern is worked the same on the right and wrong side, so it makes a great beginner or travel project. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement.
