This comfy scarf is named after the small town of Idyllwild, CA - a forested retreat steps from the Pacific Crest Trail in the San Jacinto Mountains. Idyllwild is a scarf pattern for advanced beginners who have mastered knitting and purling. Working in a simple rib stitch to start, the purl stitches are dropped to create an open fabric with incredible drape. The perfect scarf for cold winters, like a big blanket without the bulk of a solid fabric. Optional fringe adds to the coziness.

The Idyllwild Scarf is flat from a short end. Purl stitches are dropped in the last row, dropping all stitches back to cast on, drastically altering final gauge and drape.
