Urban Shells is a quick and easy scarf that is lacy enough to be feminine. Ridges created by post stitches add an interesting and stylish dimension. The two row repeat is easily memorized, but interesting enough to keep you engaged until you finish.

I have also designed a matching beanie: Urban Shells Beanie

The pattern is in US terminology.

I used 300 yards of a DK weight yarn, but the pattern will easily lend itself to other yarn weights. My scarf measured 4.25inches (11cm) wide and 52.5inches (133cm) long.

To increase or decrease the width of this scarf, make sure the starting chain is a multiple of 12 + 2.

Any item that you make from this pattern is yours to do with what you please, including selling, so long as you do not claim credit for the design.

If you do make items from this pattern to sell, I would like the pattern to be referenced - it stops people thinking you’re using it without permission and it’s handy for referral purposes - also, it’s good manners!

I ask that you refrain from selling the pattern itself, or from obtaining it from someone other than me.
