This playful, striped scarf contains thoughtful details that elevate humble garter stitch to something more polished. Featuring the designer’s Elegant I-Cord Edge technique that conceals the non-working yarn inside a tidy edging throughout, the need to weave in multiple yarn tails during finishing is eliminated. We worked up four different striping sequences, each with their own bit of character, in two yarn weights (DK and fingering) to give the knitter myriad possibilities to create one-of-a-kind neckwear.
