Pattern description from Knitting for Dummies: “This pattern uses stacked increases and decreases to create graceful scalloped edges. You create the wavy texture of this scarf by working increases and decreases in vertical columns. The stitches dip down at the decrease column and curve back up at the increases. To make the ends match, you work the scarf in two pieces from bottom up. You work the center portion of the scarf in a 2 x 2 rib that hugs your neck. See this scarf pictured in the color insert.”

Dimensions: 54 inches by 8 inches

Materials: Three 50-gram skeins (each approximately 124 yards) of Classic Elite Lush (50% angora/50% wool), or any yarn with a comparable gauge; one pair of size 8 and 9 needles’

Gauge: “Rather than try to match gauge, work up a swatch in stockinette stitch on size 9 needles. If you like the way it looks, start the pattern. If it feels tight and doesn’t have enough drape, go up a needle size. if your swatch appears too loose, go down a needle size.”
