It’s a groovy scarf, it’s a stash-buster, and it’s a tutorial on short rows. The wedge sections that create the great undulating shape are formed with a series of decreasing and then increasing short rows.

The pattern gives full, step-by-step instructions about how to work the short rows using an alternative technique employing yarn overs instead of wraps. Separate directions are give for working knit-side short rows and purl-side short rows. The end result will be flawless, beautiful short rows and a scarf that will make you want to twist and shout!
