This scarf features reverse Stocking Stitch and Garter Stitch panels, with an optional intarsia section to add a dash of contrast. The Garter Stitch panels are knitted on the bias, which gives the ends of the scarf a pleasing staggered effect and enhanced drape.

Cabled edgings add a bit of interest whilst knitting and give the finished piece a polished look. As the panels don’t change size, this is a wonderful first intarsia project. The technique is explained within the pattern, as you must ensure the working yarn is wrapped correctly each time.
