I wrote the pattern for my beginner knitting class at Edward King House, Senior Center, in Newport RI. The pattern uses garter stitch and a very simple two row knit and purl stitch. It’s texture reminds me of the sand on the beaches and gentle ripples washing the shoreline.

This unisex reversible scarf is easy to learn and excellent for traveling or television knitting. The pattern may be simple, but it is fun to knit!

The pattern has been test knit. It is written and charted.

The scarf looks good in any gauge and can be made wider or narrower by adding stitches. If you make the scarf wider or longer, you should purchase extra yarn. I used a #4 weight medium weight yarn in 100% wool. Sample is knit in Patons Classic Wool worsted, a medium weight #4 yarn with approx. 11 WPI. I used 2 skeins of the color Aran. Gauge is not essential, but varying the gauge will result in different yardage and final size of the scarf. To be sure that you have enough yarn, you may purchase 3 skeins. The pattern has been test knit. It has charts and written instructions.
