I started this scarf a couple weeks ago when I posted about playing around with a stitch I found on the blog Raji's Craft Hobby. I made a couple minor changes to the stitch to make a fabric that I liked more, and this simple pattern is the result.
Made in heavy worsted, with a J hook, this scarf works up quickly. I like that it looks good on both sides and is relatively unisex. The pattern stitch requires an odd multiple of 2 stitches. My preference is for a scarf to be about 6 or 7 inches across, but if you want a wider scarf, allow for more yardage and increase the number of stitches in increments of 4. The yardage requirement given in the pattern is for a 5.5 foot scarf with fringe.
