A cosy, chunky-weight scarf in a reversible, diagonal rib pattern - with nearly 1000 project on Ravelry this is our most popular pattern! This is the ideal scarf pattern – simple, reversible, quicker to knit than seed stitch and regular 2×2 ribbing (because it compresses less). It suits a man or a woman equally well. This interesting stitch pattern has a beginner rating as it's entirely knit and purl. However, it requires a little concentration, so we've included photos to help you find your place should you get lost. The suggested yarn is a warm and luxurious blend of merino, alpaca and silk. The silk and alpaca give it a lovely drape. This can be substituted for any chunky-weight yarn, or in fact any other weight and we've included instructions for working the pattern with a different tension/gauge.
