The El Gusano (caterpillar) scarf is a single skein, sport weight, transitional knit. Designed specifically for the 2017 San Diego Yarn Crawl, in collaboration with the Yarnover Truck and Forbidden Woolery. I took inspiration for this scarf from the variety of California caterpillars that grace this gorgeous state. The scarf is knit lengthwise, with a zig zag eyelet lace border and edge that creates the caterpillar like shape. A fun knit to take summer with you as you head into cooler weather.

Gauge: 36 stitches by 36 rows is 4 inches in garter stitch on US size 6s.
