This scarf is a quick knit with a sophisticated look. If you make the scarf exactly as it looks in the photo, it uses 220 yards of bulky weight yarn with size 9(5.5mm) needles. It’s a great way to liven up your wardrobe choices in the midst of a long winter. The Winnipegger’s flexible in terms of yarn choice… Choose something purchased locally, spin your own yarn, or raid your stash! Each end features a triangle point with a CO or BO of just 3 stitches, and an offset bramble stitch, which widens out to a rectangle in the middle. Adjust the length to suit and tuck one end through the other to create a finished “bow tie” look.

You can create an individualized look with this scarf. Gauge is flexible, so double a lighter weight yarn or use a bulky one. If you live in a cold climate, knit a longer scarf, which allows you to wrap the scarf around the neck at least twice. Tuck in your scarf around your neck, or leave it free to flap in the breeze!
