EZ provides not so much a pattern as describes a process for creating a scarf-like tube by knitting in the round and decreasing both ends and grafting sides together. She describes a basic ratio of end to body stitches to reduce end flaring. No gauge, needle or yarn specs are provided. See pages 108-110 in Knitting Without Tears.

Pattern description from Knitting Without Tears: “It is desirable to have scarves with no obvious right or wrong side, and this brings us to my favorite kind, which is a little more work, but, to me, well worth it.”

Please note, this pattern is NOT the mobius scarf.
