Orchid contains a cable that reminds me of the dainty orchid leaf. These leaves slowly emerge again and again from the center of the plant. The gartered section of the scarf is created by slowly increasing just to the side of the cable.

The great thing about this scarf is any yarn can be used to knit this scarf. Knit in a bulky or worsted weight yarn for a quick project or knit in a dk or lace weight for a daintier version.
