This scarf is a simple piece of stockinette that undergoes patterned fabric manipulation as it is worked. The sculptural folds are created by way of lifting selected stitches from several rows below and working them together with live stitches from your current row, in the same manner as a Three-Needle Bind Off. The final page of the pattern includes a helpful tutorial on working these Lifted Stitch Gathers. Follow the instructions for a scarf with a finished length of either of the three sizes, or, if you prefer to use every last yard of your yarn, continue working pattern repeats until you have approximately 6g of yarn leftover and proceed to final instruction for finishing hem.
