Stegoscarf

A spiney 3-D sculptural super scarf.

Two distinct looks, depending on how it is folded/worn=

Flat gives 3 dimensional plated spines, while folded gives a zigzag.

Written and Charted pattern.

Beginner: Basic Lace Stitches, 3 Needle BO (or Kitchener) K, P, YO, SSK, K2TOG, S2KP (central double decrease)

Quick and simple knit. With only 2 different row patterns to memorize you won’t need to be eyeballing the chart/directions constantly - just relax and knit away on this Jumbo scarf.

Worked in two pieces - bottom up, joined at the center with either grafting (Kitchener) or a 3 needle BO.

No blocking necessary.

Easily modified for length and nice worked in any size of yarn as well, just make sure you are getting nice tight stitches and remember - the smaller the gauge, the more yarn you will need.
