Mosaic Tile Ascot
Short Description: This lightweight ascot-style scarf is just the ticket to take the fall chill off. This scarf looks great under a trench coat or v-neck and is a good introduction to color work for beginner knitters. The tile is a mosaic stitch pattern where one color is used at a time, eliminating fussy multiple-stranding as in Fair Ise technique. This ascot is closed using snap tape with decorative buttons added--no need for buttonholes! Because it is done in sock yarn, a myriad of color combinations is possible.
