I love this pattern because there is no right or wrong side. It's reversible! And it makes for a lovely unisex scarf. I always find it more challenging to knit up stuff for the guys, so this one works as long as it isn't in a "girly" color. Sorry the picture above isn't very good, it was the most focused one I took ... had bad lighting, and had to take it quickly before my little girl pulled on it, moved it, or tried to move me while I was taking the picture.
The scarf shown above uses about 400 yds of worsted weight yarn and is a finished size of about 7.5 inches wide x 66 inches long.
If you're interested in a matching hat, try my Asherton Hat. I have an adult version and a toddler version. The pictures of the adult Asherton Hat looks better here, but the pattern for the adult hat can be found here.
Stitches used in this scarf include:
Garter Stitch, BW1 pg 10
Moss Diamond and Lozenge Pattern, BW2 pg 17
Stockinette Stitch, BW1 pg 10
