A friend challenged me to make a version of the Herringbone Parallelogram Scarf with blunted ends, but keeping the flexible pattern where you can use whichever yarn you choose: fingering (sport, dk, worsted) because the pattern is written with yarn weights as if they were sizes. The photography sample was knit in Quince and Co. Lark, but here are the yardages you need for several popular yarns: Some popular yarns:  2.5 skeins of Softee Baby Solids and Maris Bernat  4 skeins of Swish  2.5 skeins of Koigu Painters Palette Premium Merino  1 skein of Noro Kureyon Sock  1.5 skeins of Smooshy by Dream in Color  1 skein of Trekking XXL  3.5 skeins of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmirino  2 skeins of Cascade 220  1.5 skeins of Simply Soft by Caron  4 skeins of Wool of the Andes  2 skeins of Classic Wool Patons  4 skeins of Swish  2 skeins of Classy by Dream in Color  2.5 skeins of Wool Ease Solids and Heathers Lion Brand  2 skeins of Berroco Comfort Solids and Heathers BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on cast off M1 right leaning M1 left leaning M1 purlwise right leaning M1 purlwise left leaning k2tog SSK k3tog (p1,k1) in one stitch p2tog P2tog-tbl GAUGE 11 (10, 9, 8) stitches of pattern in 2"/5cm measured along the row, not on the bias.
