This large scarf is worked with a stockinette base. Working with 2 colors in stripes, the slipped stitches pull up the color from the row below to make this cool pattern.
This scarf uses two colors of yarn. The blue is considered the main color (MC), and the variegated is considered the contrast color (CC). Use the colors as directed throughout the pattern - with MC or with CC.
Carry yarns along the side edge to avoid weaving in a lot of ends. Pick up the new color behind the old color before working the row with the new color.
