Inspired by the fluted edge of an old Parisian carousel, this v-shaped scarf with a modern triangular edging detail is remarkably easy to wear.

This is the scarf pattern I find myself returning to time and time again. Its v-shape keeps it in place with a minimum of fuss, and it’s just the right size to be cozy without being overly bulky. It’s simple to knit, and the edging adds visual interest.

Worked in alternating garter-stitch stripes with a central column of yarn-overs. Once you’re past the first few rows, this scarf is easy to knit without the pattern – perfect for social knitting or travel.
