Fallback is my celebration of having fall back! Hooray for scarf weather!

Fallback is also a great scarf for, well, falling back on. This makes a perfect little scarf for rolling up and keeping in your bag or car, for those days you’re kicking yourself for forgetting your outer wear.

Truth be told: this isn’t really a scarf, it’s a vehicle for fringe! The fringe lines one entire side of the scarf for maximum frill. Tapering garter stitch is joined by tapering dropped stitches for an easy to memorize but attention-holding pattern.
