The ultimate scarf. Soft, comfortable, and warm -- without the bulk. Designed by Shellie Anderson, M.1 features Maai with subtle details. Length-wise slipped stitches and I-cord edging create visual interest and give the entire piece a lofty, modern structure. You will need:

3 (4) skeins Maai

Shown in Fog

NOTE: A characteristic of the I-cord cast-on is the appearance of elongated stitches across the first row following the cast-on, which will become much less noticeable after a few rows of the stitch pattern are worked.

Due to its chainette structure, Maai relaxes after washing. For this reason, swatches must be washed and blocked to accurately measure gauge.
