Pattern Description:

The English county of Kent is renowned for its hard winters. Residents living in towns such as Beckenham soon learn to wrap themselves up well when the northerly winds arrive. Here are two scarves that might just keep them - and you - warm during the deepest of chills.

The pattern features a strongly graphical design which is just perfect for a man's scarf. The grey scarf is worked in a soft worsted-weight merino wool, while the green version uses a super-warm chunky yarn. Three different stitch charts are included to give a range of scarf widths to suit everyone you wish to knit for. The patterning is completely reversible so it doesn't matter which side shows as the breezes start to blow.

An error crept into the US version dated 24Oct2013. The UK version is fine, but in the US version a "p1, k1," was missed out.

Row 7 should read: K4, p1, k1, (p3, k3, p3, k1) x2, p1, k1, p3, k3, p3, k5.

This is corrected in US v30Oct2013 and the new v2.0-31Mar2013.
