This half-skein scarf uses an easy-to-memorize stitch pattern that works up quickly and is completely reversible! The shading of the yarn color gives it more depth! With only half of a skein of Lion Brand Scarfie yarn (or any bulky weight yarn), you can have a very nice scarf to give as a gift or for yourself! The scarf, as shown, measures 5" wide x 46-50" long. If a wider or longer scarf is desired, more of the skein of yarn can be used. Just cast on more stitches and/or work more rows (in the correct pattern multiples) in the scarf. This pattern is both written and charted. Size 9 (5.5mm) knitting needles are used. Only knit and purl stitches are used to achieve the textural look of this knit scarf! I hope you enjoy knitting this reversible scarf, which is perfect for men, women and children!
