In this scarf the stitch pattern meanders along the edges of the scarf creating an interesting textural pattern like a Zen garden in simple knits and purl stitches. Reversible, It looks the same on both sides. This could be a good guy scarf but is wearable by anyone. Knit it with worsted weight yarn on size 8 (5mm) knitting needles this scarf measured 53” long x 3.75” wide. The ribbing does pull in the sides which can be countered with blocking. Knit in a wool yarn, washed and laid out flat it grew to 68” long x 4.5” wide. For a wider scarf, use a thicker yarn and the needle size recommended by the yarn label.The pattern has written instructions only.
