The variegated yarn used for this scarf is called “Bird of Paradise”. So what’s the paradox? How can a scarf that looks so intricate be so easy to knit? You will find that this pattern, which uses only knits and purls, is simple enough for the confident beginner. Some careful attention to the detailed instructions will yield a textured, reversible scarf that will not curl, with interesting bursts of colors from the variegated yarn.
