Favorite Scarf Ever
I thought this gorgeous skein of Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn (that was my birthday gift to myself) deserved to be used for something more visible than socks - so I did some stitchy pattern math and came up with this easy to memorize pattern to make a lightweight drapey scarf that is perfect for fall and springtime.

The design is symmetrical: the scarf is worked from one edging through a long central panel; then, a second edging is knit and the two pieces are grafted together. The grafting is worked within a beaded garter stitch band.

All of the “main” patterns are based on 11 by 11 stitch squares. I alternate “all-over” background patterns in between…
Crazed Scandinavian Cowl pattern by Wendy D. Johnson
