This scarf, knit in two directions,allows much room for creativity.
It can be made with one type of yarn, but is best for color or texture blocking. You can also try something I call comfort blocking - put a soft luxury yarn in places which touch your skin and less touch friendly but fabulous looking yarn on the ends.
