This scarf is created from a reversible stitch pattern in Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. It’s a two row pattern, easy to memorize, that creates softly rounded columns on one side and fluted ribs on the reverse side. The fabric is flat and stable, but with a nice drape.

The stitch can be done in one color, but a really interesting effect results from alternating colors every other row.

The scarf can be easily varied in both the width and the length.
