Description from the Patternfish.com pattern page (http://www.patternfish.com/patterns/1508):

“When my friend Ken celebrated his 60th birthday, I decided to create a scarf in his honor,” says Matthews. “I knew that what was needed was something that involved a little bit of thinking outside the box… which left you with a good feeling in the end-- much like Ken himself. And, in a nod to his many years spent in Japan and his continuing connection to the country, its people and its culture, I knew the yarn had to be Japanese.” And so it is. This marvellous, true seaman’s scarf is a work of art, each one unique, and a mini-workshop in mitreing. Gauge given is over seed stitch.

PS My friend Ken is also known to us as “The Scarborough Dude”, hence the name of this scarf.

Size information:
Each mitred rectangle measures 43 cm x 18 cm (17 inches x 7 inches). Total length of the scarf is 141 cm (55.5 inches).

Requires 3 balls of Noro Silk Garden Lite.

Notes updated Feb 3, 2013

Starting February 6 and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ , an organization that does good work on behalf of LGBTQ people. I was inspired to do this by my friend Lynne Sosnowski (etcgirl here on Rav), who has written beautifully of her beliefs. I hope Lynne’s thoughts will inspire others to support not only the athletes, but everyone who works hard to be faster, to fly higher, to be stronger, no matter what their endeavor, no matter who they are, no matter who they love.
