Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basics, yarnovers, decr (k2tog, p2tog)

Pattern Description:

A quick knit cowl that combines two related stitches for fantastic texture and interesting contrast. Wear it long as a scarf, wrap it over your shoulders or twist it up as a cowl. Make it in a lightweight, silky yarn for your spring and summer wardrobe or in a drapey, heavier yarn for cold weather. You will find these stitches to be an easy, rhythmic knit that results in a scarf so versatile you will wear it with everything from casual to dressy. The fun part is finding that you get three attractive textures out of two stitch patterns.
The design is named after Manzanita Beach on the Oregon coast which has weather and terrain as varied as this scarf. It's a rather secluded and quaint little spot off of Hwy 101 where you can relax, enjoy the quiet (or wild!) beachfront, and make lifelong friends and memories all in a single magical weekend.
