Pattern Description:

Knitting Just A Little Twist in a worsted weight yarn on larger needles turns it into A Bigger Twist. This scarf is thicker, warmer, and loftier. The right twist stitch (photo tutorial included in pattern) creates visual interest on one side and a ribbed pattern on the other side. Remember to slip the first and purl the last stitch of every row to keep the edges straight and neat. Knit in a super soft merino wool, this is a thick, luxurious scarf to wrap around your neck this winter!
