Purl Free Scarf
This eye-catching, unisex scarf has not a purl stitch in sight. Worked entirely in an easy combination of knit and slipped stitches, each row is worked in only one color so there is no carrying of colors across rows. A simple four-row pattern repeat creates a stunningly textured accessory in three beautiful colors.
As pictured, the Purl Free Scarf measures 7" wide by 60" long, and calls for approximately 160 yards of each of three colors.
The edges of the Purl Free Scarf will not curl, and although not identical on both sides, the reverse side has its own attractive texture.
Don't want to use three colors? The Purl Free Scarf can be made using only two colors, or even a single color if desired. The four-row pattern repeat is the same regardless of the number of colors used. The scarf width can be customized, as long as the pattern is worked over an odd number of stitches.
The gauge for the Purl Free Scarf can be varied according to yarns used.
