This parallelogram shaped scarf-wrap can be worn around your neck or elegantly draped over the shoulders in the evening. The pattern includes instructions for two lengths:
145 cm = 57‘’ for women’s scarf and
216 cm = 85‘’ for men’s scarf, however, you can knit a longer or a shorter project.

Both scarfs have only a few narrow purl-sections for accentuating visually interesting patterns, so do not worry if your stockinette stitch is uneven - your finished work will still look like a designer-piece, a stylish Christmas gift for your loved ones.
