I may be biased but I find this scarf really cozy! In construction it is very simple. A wonderfully plain garter stitch gets glamourized when knit on the bias with easy to stitch increases and decreases. The bias fabric has extra drape and is so comfortable to wear. Colour is another essential consideration in this neck garment. One main colour is knit double stranded with several contrasting colours in colour-blocks. The colours are divided so that a bit of each is visible when it is worn wrapped around the neck. A one-ply, fingering weight yarn like Madelinetosh Merino Light won’t allow the scarf to get too heavy despite the doubling up. Merino Light comes in handy small skeins of 47 meters each, sweetly called “Unicorn Tails”. We made good use of them for this project utilizing two Unicorn Tails for each of the four contrasting colours. One full skein of Merino Light is carried throughout and mixed with all the Unicorn Tails.This is a great project for a new knitter or a knitter who wants an easy-breezy TV watching project.

Level: Knitters will need to know how to cast on and knit, increase and decrease stitches, and bind off to make this scarf.
