Out & About unites entertaining textures and construction to create a smart, eye-catching scarf. It begins with two quick triangles in its center; then it is knitted out to the two ends.

Much of the scarf is knitted in cozy garter stitch. Slipped stitches are used to “draw” branching lines across the fabric. These lines are bordered with bands of a richly textured quilt stitch that is much easier to work than it looks. The different stitch sections and DK-weight yarn make the project fly by.

The finished scarf features striking geometric patterns suitable for all of the knitworthy people in your life. Both warm and stylish, it will be perfect for a fall weekend out and about in a favorite destination.
