From Knitting New Scarves:

The inspiration for Labyrinth was the famed Chanel jacket, first created in the 1920s. Every time this popular classic comes back into vogue, it seems to have ever more decorative treatments on every visible edge. I used the technique of Scrap Yarn Slits in this scarf to create dozens of edges and then simply bound off at each edge with a contrasting color for decoration. This is an easy scarf to make, and is a good choice for knitters just learning to knit around.

Requires four US 10 double-pointed needles, two US 9 double-pointed needles, and a stitch marker. Pattern also calls for 15 yards of lighter weight, contrasting scrap yarn, which will be discarded after knitting the edging.
