Not in the mood to purl? This eye-catching, unisex scarf has not a purl stitch in sight. Worked entirely in an easy combination of knit and slipped stitches, each row uses only one color so there is no carrying of colors across rows. A simple four-row pattern repeat creates a stunningly textured accessory in three beautiful colors. The pattern includes how-to instructions (with photos) on carrying colors up the side of the scarf to create a neat edge. The Purl Free Scarf will not curl, and although not identical on both sides, the reverse side of the scarf has its own attractive texture. As long as there are an odd number of stitches on the needle, the Purl Free Scarf is completely customizable.
