The Boardroom Scarf is a wonderful gift for those who have a high-end sense of style (and who may shy away from the “rustic” or “homemade” quality of many handknits!). Completely reversible (though subtly different on each side), this scarf features elegant and understated stitch patterns which are easy to memorize, simple to execute, and a pleasure to behold.
This pattern includes both charts and written instructions, and is suitable for a confident beginner (though interesting enough for a much more experienced knitter!). Skills required include knit, purl, knit through back loop, and purl through back loop. Although written for sport-weight yarn, this pattern can easily be adapted to yarns from fingering to worsted weight - instructions for doing so are included in the pattern.
Please note: the yarns listed above are all suggested yarns that will work well with this pattern - only one yarn is needed!
