From the pattern website: “The result is a classic scarf with clean lines and a sophisticated design suitable for anybody, but especially for those who may not necessarily choose to sport a hand knitted item. A larger version of this scarf would also make a fine baby blanket or throw.
The scarf is worked lengthwise. The cast-on and cast-off rows form the side edges of the finished scarf and are worked as a round cast-on/bind-off. A three-stitch slipped-stitch edging makes up the bottom and top border of the finished scarf. The difficulty of the main pattern is on the mellow side, set-up and finishing require a little more time and attention, and are therefore tangy.”
