This handsome, unisex scarf features a herringbone stitch with a moss stitch border. This pattern is suitable for beginning knitters.

A note on yarn selection: This pattern uses a stockinette-based stitch and thus has a strong tendency to curl. If using Rowan Cashsoft DK, you may wish to block and iron the finished scarf to reduce this tendency.

If substituting yarn, it’s recommended to choose a yarn that is mostly natural fiber. In addition, the zigzag/striping effect will show up best in a yarn with good stitch definition and a bit of sheen.
