The scarf was inspired by the high-back chairs designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for The Hill House, the house which he designed and furnished for the publisher Walter Blackie. The scarf is double-knit, making it completely reversible and extra cosy.

The pattern requires a total of 440 yards of yarn, 220 yards in each of two colours.

For the squares to be square when the scarf is finished, your blocked gauge needs to have a 4:6 stitches to row ratio.
