The pattern is for a conservatively styled scarf - make one in solid alpaca or wool for guys who don't want frills or fringes, or a delicate mohair blend in a bright color for a lady. The scarf is knit in a reversible flat rib pattern that coordinates with everything from a mountaineering parka to a business suit. You can get a different look by using different yarns (see the photos). I have updated this pattern to include instructions for four different yarn weights.
