Herringbone Parallelogram Scarf Pattern $5.00
It is just long enough to wind around the neck and cross over the chest, without leaving
the ends to show under a jacket waist. I’ve written
the instructions for fingering (sport, dk, worsted)
weight yarns, as if they were sizes, for ease of substitutions.
The Berroco Design Studio said
The Herringbone Parallelogram Scarf, designed by Christine Guest using Ultra Alpaca Light, instantly adds a hint of simple elegance to any jacket or coat. The attractive chevron stitch pattern is reversible, and the pattern is written for a number of different gauges. If wool makes you itch, try substituting Comfort at the worsted gauge.
