This scarf starts at the neck edge with simple garter stitch. Five other sections are then worked individually from isolated segments of the first section. Increases and decreases give this unique design its architectural wingspan. Four little seams join the ribbed stitch sections together at the end.

Birdwing takes only 4 skeins of SHELTER with enough leftovers for a colorwork hat!
