This scarf looks great with other yarn/ needle combos, and a short cowl length version is included as well. OVERVIEW: Super duper bulky yarn on big needles = a fast and fun knit, with elegant results. Scrolling lace 'Eye of the Storm' stitch edged with opposing Right/Left (2 stitch) twist cables and slip stitch selvages. Pattern uses twisted stitches (K and P thru back loops) decreases and YOs. There is patterning on both sides - but it is an easy to knit, and remember, 6 row repeat. Piece needs blocking.
