The slanting stripes of lace on this garter stitch scarf remind me of the dunegrass at Pacific coast beaches near my home. The scarf is shaped to create ends long enough to wrap or tie for a versatile accessory that can travel anywhere.

The scarf is knit from the bottom up, and neck stitches are cast off to shape the ties. The lace repeats across 8 stitches and is easy to memorize and fun to work. The simple patterning looks great in both solid and multi-colored yarns.
The size can be customized, and instructions are included for lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.
