‘Airy Breeze’ is a charming triangular neck scarf or shawlette with a lighthearted look. Knitted in stockinette with eyelet rows, a garter border, and neatly finished edges, this neck scarf is pretty on both sides and can be made with only a single skein.

You can also create all kinds of variations on the design by changing the size and choosing different yarns, such as a fingering, a thin DK, or, for a summer version, a cotton, linen, or silk.

‘Airy Breeze’ is indeed a breeze to make and a pleasure to wear!

This design is easy to work from fully written-out directions with stitch counts, as well as a schematic and an easy-to-read chart.
