Yvonne has designed a pretty scarf pattern in Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton Dk. This is a versatile little piece that you can wear in a variety of different ways. We thought of three different ways and took a photograph, can you think of anymore?
It’s the type of scarf that’s small enough to pop in your bag on an autumn day, ready to bring out to keep away a chill. The design is slightly curved as you can see in the diagram below, finished off with a delicate short fringe. How about purchasing an extra ball and making your fringe extra-long?
Without further ado, here is the pattern just for you!
