ripple wave shape of the pattern stitch in this design, one end of
scarf will look different than the other end. If this effect is not
desired, the scarf may be knit in two identical pieces (see
Variation) so that stitch pattern runs in same direction on both
ends of scarf.
stitches at each edge of scarf are maintained in garter stitch (knit
every row) throughout.

knitting from 2 separate balls of yarn). Join pieces at center back
using 3-needle bind off, weaving or grafting.
Finishing: Following yarn care instructions on ball band, block
scarf to finished measurements.
