Wayfarer is a textured scarf whose raised ridges meander across a field of garter stitch through the combination of increases and decreases. The scarf has a slipped stitch selvedge on both sides — every row begins by slipping the first stitch with yarn in front, then bringing the yarn between your two needles to the back in order work second stitch.

Scarf is worked flat from end to end.
