This reversible scarf in slipped garter rib is a perfect project for less experienced knitters and for guys who like simple, uncomplicated style. Instructions are given for tubular edging if you’re up for the challenge, but also for substituting an easier method of your choice. Knit Dunaway in Loft or Shelter – 2 skeins of Loft make a lightweight, smaller scarf; 6 skeins of Shelter make an oversized cozy muffler for the worst of the winter weather.

Version I:

550 yards of fingering weight wool yarn; 2 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards/50g)
Photographed in color Faded Quilt

Note: Version I used almost 2 full skeins. If you plan to make a longer scarf, be sure to purchase an extra skein.

Version II:

820 yards of worsted weight wool yarn; 6 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 140 yards/50g)
Photographed in color Woodsmoke
