This simple scarf is an ideal project for the beginner knitter who’s adding new techniques to their toolbox. A basic wide rib pattern is punctuated by slip-stitch cables, which frame garter stitch ovals. The easy-to-work stitch pattern is also reversible, a good feature in a scarf. Two versions are provided: with or without a ruffled edge.
