Designed to go with the Backroad Hats, the Backroad Scarf uses slipped stitches and ribbing to create a warm, cushy fabric that is easy to make and works well with variegated, semi-solid, and solid yarns. Pattern includes instructions for two lengths of scarf and a shorter, buttoned cowl, and for three yarn weights: worsted (listed as Backroad Scarf - Worsted), Aran, and bulky (listed as Backroad Scarf - Bulky).
