Diverting Scarf is a reversible garter stitch scarf. Shaped as a parallelogram and worked on the bias, this scarf uses an intriguing technique that involves only cast-on, bind-off and knit stitch; no increase, decrease nor short-rows are used. It makes a great on-the-go mindless project. Have fun with your knitting!


The finished scarf measures 168 cm / 66” in length (tip to tip) and 12.5 cm / 5” in width.
