Errata: There is a small error in the row numbering- “28” appears twice. This does not affect the actual instructions. I’ll have a fixed version out soon!

Note on yarn requirements: The lace weight yarn used is tripled to make something closer to a DK. You could just use another color of DK weight yarn (the Silky Merino or something else, if you like) as long as you don’t want to use the original colors :-)

A snazzy lil’ scarfly thing with a bandana point, long cozy arms, and textured stripes. Knit from the bottom up. Shown with A Most Bespeckled Hat.

Note: This scarf does roll, as you can see in the pictures. Anything that is made primarily of stockinette stitch will roll, though you can mitigate it a bit with blocking if you’re using a blockable fiber. Personally, I’m not bothered by rolling- it’s part of stockinette’s charm- but if you are, this may not be the scarf for you ;-)
