I love this totem stitch and I wanted to see if I could use it in a scarf with my favorite shaping - worked from the bottom up and casting on stitches as you go to extend the width of the scarf. I LOVE it!

I especially love the way this yarn worked up (“Polo” by Zitron - 60% cotton/40% Acrylic), it is nice and soft and drapey. I highly recommend a cotton blend for this pattern. Yarn is labeled as worsted weight but I would call it light worsted.

Please note that you will need to see how to cast on at the beginning of the row (video reference link is included). Do not use an e-cast on at the end of the row or it will look sloppy and your edges will not look as nice.
