Free knitting pattern scarf


The feminine trellis stitch on this scarf is created by working a slip-stitch technique against a knit/purl basketweave background. The pattern looks just as tidy on the wrong side, creating two styles in one. Floaty fringe offers a delicate finishing touch.

Yarn: Tuscan AireĀ  by Plymouth Yarn Co.

Designer: Sandi Prosser

Tip: To create an infinity scarf design variation, omit the fringe and seam the ends together.
