This pattern can be found in my 2016 book Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous.

After I discovered the excitement of off-the-grid double-knitting and applied it in my enigmatic Silk Road necktie, I was itching to play more with this concept. I had sketched all kinds of patterns that used modifications of the spirals I had generated previously, but I didn’t want to create dozens of different patterns just to show off the possibilities.

Instead, I wrote a bunch of them into a single pattern that changes as it progresses. Integrated into this scarf are off-the-grid diamonds, spirals, Greek keys, and more.

The finished piece is approximately 77” long by 6” wide and uses a total of 340 g of yarn. Since you’ll have a total of 400 g, you’ll be all set.
