A clever short row technique shows off a self-striping yarn to great effect in this quick and easy scarf. Don’t worry – despite how it appears, the scarf is worked seamlessly and there’s no sewing involved.

Each triangle is worked on top of the other in an easily memorized and repetitive sequence – taking the concept of a plain garter stitch scarf from boring to bold!
