This simple scarf named Biased Transitions incorporates two of the designer's favorite things: long color repeat yarn and bias knitting. It’s also reversible for the ease of wear! Various increases and decreases shape the piece so that it’s the same on both sides - great practice with shaping for beginners. Another perk is that stockinette stitch worked on the bias doesn’t roll.
Kit includes pattern and selected yarn.
