I wanted to make a pretty scarf that would also be practical. It is knit with bamboo yarn and a reflective yarn together. The bamboo is soft against the skin and the reflective yarn reflects headlights-- so flashes back at cars to warn that you are there. Perfect for evening walks or bike rides. The scarf can be worn as shown in the photos-- naturally centered at the center back and draping over the front-- or place the center on one shoulder and flip the ends across each other on the other shoulder for a jaunty look BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Increasing with yarn overs Decreasing with knit two together GAUGE This pattern is not gauge dependent SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size 81" finished side to side 7" deep at center back SUGGESTED YARN 305 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Double Bambu, from Fiber Rhythm Craft & Design COLORWAY Your choice!
