This mosaic design features rows of staggered footballs separated by Doric columns. This scarf is knit using slipped stitches – an easy technique that creates textured, two-color results while knitting with only one color at a time. If you can knit a garter stitch scarf, you can knit this scarf. And it would look great in any team colors.

Skills: Cast on, knit, slip stitches purlwise, bind off.

Size: 6.5” wide X 74” long

Note - this scarf is knit from a mosaic chart, which is read slightly differently than other knitting or colorwork charts. Be sure to read the general notes before working from the chart. Don’t let the chart keep you from trying this design, though. This scarf is nothing more than a garter stitch scarf where the colors change every two rows.
