Scarborough Dude Scarf
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.
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.
