This scarf is stretchy and cozy, super easy and yet effective. The instructions are written to accommodate most yarn weights, giving you a lot of freedom to choose any yarn you like. It is constructed of a simple “mistake rib” with a crocheted scallop trim.

Craft: knitting and crochet

Skill Level: Rookie-Apprentice-Virtuoso-Genius

Skills: knit, purl, ch, sc, dc

Finished Measurements: dependent on yarn

Yarn: (200g) of Main Colour, (50-100g of Trim)
Note: sorry, but amount and yardage is dependent on the weight of yarn you choose. Ask for help at your local yarn store.

Recommended Brand: your choice; I used a worsted weight wool for the example, and a sport weight merino for the trim; you can mix and match yarn types and weights, but choose a medium weight yarn (avoid lace weight, fingering weight or anything too chunky)

Needles/Hooks: match to your yarn according to the label; shown knitted with a worsted weight on 8 mm
