Crazy Quilt Scarf
Short Description: The main stitch pattern of this scarf is reminiscent of a crazy quilt, with its erratic changes in direction, but is balanced by an orderly border of garter rib at each hem. The motifs pop in a solid yarn, but are strong enough to stand up to one that has some texture or color variation. This scarf is a fun project that knits up quickly and is highly portable - it's the perfect piece to work on while watching TV or spectator sports. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
