This eye shaped scarf begins at the center with circular shaping for the pupil and iris. The white sections are worked back and forth in garter stitch while being attached to the iris. The final border is worked in the round with two-color brioche for a graphic eyelash effect. Instructions include an optional striped garter stitch border if you prefer simple garter stitch to brioche.
