Sample shown in worsted-weight yarn.

A lusciously thick, easy-to-knit scarf ~ an excellent choice for someone who likes a “no fuss” pattern!

Whether you choose a classic grey like the one pictured (knit in Kertzer Northern Worsted) or use a special hand-spun or your very own hand-dyed yarn, this scarf is sure to please.

The stitch pattern’s unique stitch combinations create an elegant fabric that does not curl -- no need for a moss or garter stitch border -- and it presents two very different faces ~ Cobblestones and Rails.

Although the pattern gives directions for Aran, Worsted and Sport-weight yarns, using any yarn (with needles that give you a texture that you like) can provide a vast variety of scarves from just this one pattern.

Between the 9 widths, 2 lengths and 3 yarn weights, 22 different sizes are included in this pattern. Directions are also provided for adjusting the width of the scarf making the possibilities endless!

Length: 36 (72)“ / 90 (180)cm long
Widths: 3.5 - 18” / 9 - 46cm over 3 yarn weights
