  • The scarf is worked bottom up in two colors of yarn and three different Tunisian stitches.

  • Increases are made on both the right and left edges as indicated in the pattern.

  • Because of the increases on the right edge, the first vertical bar will always be worked except on Row 1 and the bind-off row.
