Pattern Description from Scarf Style: “Amanda Blair Brown has created a striped scarf like no other. The stripes are worked as individual panels in a variety of tweed yarns, then connected by bright bobbles. Original and whimsical, this scarf makes a great beginner’s project - knit and purl is all you need to do. And if your stripes come out a little longer or shorter than they’re supposed to, it won’t make a whit of difference.”
