Pattern Description:

A fun and easy project ~ for yourself or to gift! An easy stitch pattern shows off the modular construction of this scarf, while the sequined yarn captures the shine of a precious jewel.

Warm, cozy and a bit retro ~ knit this scarf in "Soft Payette" by Rozetti, as shown, or try it in a variegated, hand-painted, or even a self-striping colorway. The knotted fringe can be made as long or short as you like.

I really like the length of this scarf, and the diagonal lines. It's long enough to wrap numerous ways and the modular construction keeps it an interesting knit. Knotting the fringe is fun too! You can use any 'knot' design you like ~ or just let it 'hang loose'.
