Bristol Ginormous Reversible Scarf Wrap
Bristol was inspired and modified by the extra-wide, extra-long scarf worn by Lenny Kravitz.
A sophisticated twist to the basic chevron design. Knit and purl stitches creates a pleasing reversible texture pattern. It’s both wide and long to bundle up for cold and windy days. Its written in three size widths.

Getting the desired fabric is more important than the gauge. The gauge listed here is a benchmark to determine width and fabric. Any yarn weight can be used, adjust pattern divisible by 8 sts +1 to achieve desired width, adjusting needle size accordingly for desired fabric.
