Pattern Notes

As the long edges are slightly scalloped, instead of blocking wires I would recommend steam ironing the edges after the scarf is dry.

You can make the scarf narrower or wider by subtracting or adding pattern repeats. One pattern repeat is approximately 3.5” / [9 cm] wide.

Pattern (make 2 pieces)

CO 103 sts.

Knit 6 rows, ending with WS row.

Start Rose chevron pattern. Work the full pattern 10 times.

Note: WS rows are not charted.

Finishing

With WS sides facing, graft the live sts together with kitchener stitch.

Weave in ends. Block to measurements.
