Here’s something for a knitter to solve:
What’s an easy scarf to knit that looks nice, isn’t a basic rib or garter stitch, but can be easily knit while reading a good book or watching a good mystery show? The answer, dear knitter, is the Baker Street Scarf!
Knit in a lovely cashmere yarn that any man (or woman) would want to wear while looking smart around town, the mix of knit and purl on one side and plain knitting on the opposite side give each side of the scarf a cool and unique look. The scarf worn on the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes is in a darker navy or gray color, but since our model is Neil Gaiman, it had to be in black! Make your own version in basic black like Neil’s to be mysterious, or in a bright color if standing out in a crowd suits you better!

Note- The pattern on the Knitty website offers a version in a lovely “Say Nevermore” Gaea from Blue Moon Fibers. Just as luxurious and soft as the cashmere!
