Pattern description from Interweave Knits: “When my house burned down I couldn’t concentrate well enough to knit my favorite Fair Isle patterns, so for my two scarves I chose luscious yarns, and the simplest of stitches, with a slant!”

Notions: Tapestry needle; small amount of contrasting scrap yarn; piece of cardboard about 6” (15 cm) wide and 8” (20.5 cm) long for making tassels.
