This scarf showcases the transformation of simple knit and purl stitches into a subtle and sophisticated design. Artful variation and repetition of stitch patterns contribute to an appealing texture that is also enjoyable to knit, and built-in side i-cords provide easy-to-block, polished edges.

Although many different fibers would be well suited to this pattern, the Lana Como Tweed yarn shown in the sample adds interest via flecks of color and produces a scarf that is both lightweight and warm.

The pattern is fully written and is also charted.
