Adventures in Knit and Purl!

Worked in 3 variations of the same pattern stitch, this is a totally reversible scarf. Yet, the double nature of this scarf doesn’t stop there.

Whether knit in black or white, when worked in a yarn with a nuance of shine, this can be the scarf that accompanies the tuxedo to the Black Tie gala. The light reflections will provide just the right touch of sparkle perfect for the occasion.

On the flip side, knit this scarf in a soft wool and it becomes an everyday favourite – understated simplicity. Choose a smooth-surfaced yarn for best effect, so that the lovely stitch definition is not hidden in the yarn halo.

The slipped stitch edge provides a perfect rounded finish to both sides.

Size: End borders 8” 20cm wide; Centre Portion 5” 13cm wide; Length: 48” 122cm

Skills: knit, purl, knit through back of loop, purl through back of loop, slip stitch

Since the scarf is knit to length, row gauge is not crucial.

Yarn Note (January 2013): The original yarn used for this pattern has been discontinued by Bernat (so, sad! it was a lovely yarn!). We have added some additional yarn choices that would work well for this pattern. A yarn with a touch of bamboo or silk will provide that bit of sheen the original yarn had that made it so perfect for this scarf.
