You’ll enjoy this biased garter stitch scarf – choose at least three colors. Begin with the lightest color and transition into a darker color by knitting two-row stripes until you are ready to work the new color on its own. The subtle stripes blend tonal and speckled yarns together for a smooth gradient effect. This colorful scarf features I-cord on all edges.  Finished measurements are 11” wide and 116” long (although the length is up to you).
