Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Winter 2008/09: “The beauty of this child’s scarf by Kristin Nicholas is its versatility: The motifs are appropriate for both boys and girls. The scarf, edged at the sides with garter stitch, begins and ends in a twisted rib that is buffered by several rows of reverse stockinette. Knit it in ‘Creative Focus Worsted’ by Nashua Handknits/Westminster Fibers.”
