The inspiration for Safra comes from the interesting textures that nature creates in autumn. The pattern features soft graduated cables and leaf-shaped cables on a reverse stockinette stitch background. Additional texture is created by working few bobbles along the bottom edge of the crescent and the ends of the scarf.
This pattern includes two shapes; a traditional rectangular scarf and a crescent wrap. The scarf is worked from a temporary cast on at the center, down to both ends. The elongated crescent is worked from the top down and is shaped using simple garter stitch short rows.
2 August 2014 - Error in the short row directions—all wrong side rows should be knit, not purled, for a garter stitch texture, not stockinette.
