The diagonal 'mistake' ribbing on this scarf gives it interesting dimensional texture. The pattern is reversible, so there is no ugly side, which is great for scarves as you wear them in three dimensions. The pattern is a simple repeat of only eight lines. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit Purl Slip a Stitch Yarn Over Knit Two Together GAUGE Gauge: The gauge of this scarf is not terribly important, as there really is no fit to worry about. For reference, though, using the Di.Ve Zenith worsted weight wool per 2 inches it was 17 stitches and 15 rows knit in the mistake rib pattern. The width of the scarf measures 5.5 inches. You can truly customize it by varying the yarn weight and needle size, or adding to or subtracting from the pattern repeat. Use your imagination!
