Channel your inner minimalist (it’s in there somewhere!) with this easy but stylish scarf. The pattern is a super simple one row repeat so makes a great couch project.

Finished Measurements

  • Width: 8.5” / 21.5cm

  • To make the scarf wider/narrower simply add/subtract any multiple of 2 to/from your starting chain.

Color Changes

  • When you change color, you will carry the unworked yarn along the top of your stitches so that you are ready to pick this yarn up again for the next row.
