Heather Scarf

This scarf was made for my daughter, who requested a wide scarf. It is easy to make and suitable for a beginner as it is a one row repeating pattern using the half-treble v-stitch (UK terms). This pattern can easily be adapted to whatever length and width you desire – if you want a narrower scarf then reduce the foundation chain (still a multiple of 2+2), adjust the length by working as many or as few rows as you wish..

Approx 200g-300g of double knitting yarn – I used 2 x 150g of King Cole Curiosity in shade Heather (2892).
