This scarf uses a special Tuck-Stitch pattern (a cousin to Brioche Stitch) to create an extra squishy (and reversible) fabric – perfect for wrapping up in on cold winter days. Holding two strands of Loft together results in an aran-weight yarn that is incredibly light and offers beautiful stitch definition. The length of the scarf has been designed for versatile types of wear: wrap it twice for relaxed drape, or thrice for a layered cowl fit. If you prefer a traditional scarf, rather than the “infinity” (looped) variety, we have included instructions for you in the Variations section at the end of the pattern.
