An intriguing scarf to carry you through the seasons ~ the perfect accessory.

The short version creates a perfect neckpiece or headband; a longer version can be worn flowing backwards or as a belt.

Gauge Note
This yarn relaxes a lot when blocked and hung. It had a “right off the needle row gauge” of 36 rows = 4” 10cm, a blocked gauge of 31 rows = 4” and hung gauge (I weighted the swatch with clothespins and hung it for a day to see how much it would stretch) of 30 rows = 4” 10cm ~ hence the approx. length given for the scarf; it will relax as you wear it.

The Yarn
Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo is a 80% bamboo/20% wool blend - a very soft and supple yarn.

Large-eyed needle to weave in ends
