Rubicon Bay Scarf
The scarf is part of an e-book that introduces Showy Garter. The Showy Decrease is a way to add raised lines to your knitting. Our patterns have used the Showy Decrease in a variety of ways; with stockinette, for super deep ribs and pretty hat tops and now on garter where it really stands out. Here the Showy Decreases create decorative vertical lines that run the length of the scarf.

Yarn and Gauges
Cascade Magnum is a super bulky yarn that knits a very dramatic scarf. If you’d like something just as fun but a little less bulky, we’ve included instructions for a bulky gauge.

There is a lot more information about the eBook in the series of 5 blog posts rolling out in the next two weeks.
