This dimensional pleating stitch creates a textural scarf with just 4 skeins of Staccato. The nature of pleating creates curved edges detail on the bottom while slightly scalloping along the sides. Being worked on a rather large size needle, the scarf will grow quickly and drape beautifully. Being rather mindless this pattern certainly teaches a new technique while keeping even a seasoned knitter captivated.
