This super-cozy scarf or wrap is a treat to knit in a gradient of natural or hand-dyed shades and looks great in a solid color as well. Knit in one piece from side to side, the scarf begins with a long cast on, but knits up in a jiffy with just a few pattern repeats. An easy-to-knit mix of knit/purl texture and simple openwork stitches form a fabric that is universally appealing, which makes this project a good choice to knit now and gift later. This squishy, delicious scarf is an enjoyable knitter’s respite from a busy schedule, for beginners and experienced knitters alike.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
