Again inspired by crochet, the main section of this scarf is worked in a knitted stitch pattern that has the beautiful geometry of an offset crochet shell motif. The shell shapes are achieved through elongated drop stitches combined with quadruple decreases. The stitch pattern is repeated every four rows, but every other repeat is offset so that the motifs stack on top of one another brick-fashion. The edging, worked at a much looser gauge than the body of the scarf, resembles a series of crochet chains (and is just as easy to work) that creates a generous ruffle at each end.
