The Petal Scarf is a flat version of the original Petal Cowl. The stitch shapes are inspired by flower petals, fish scales, and vintage crocheted afghans. A great cold weather knit, or a summer project when made in thinner yarn. A unique stitch is used to create an extra long chevron motif which sets this scarf apart.

Note: I have added extra information about yarn substitution and pattern modifications as well as updating the stacked stitch instructions to match current notation. You can now choose which kind of stacked decrease you want to use.
