The main stitch pattern of this scarf is reminiscent of a crazy quilt, with its erratic changes in direction, but is balanced by an orderly border of garter rib at each hem. The motifs pop in a solid yarn, but are strong enough to stand up to one that has some texture or color variation. This scarf is fun project that knits up quickly and is highly portable—it’s the perfect piece to work on while watching TV or spectator sports.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
