Stripes are knit in two directions and on the diagonal with either full-on stripes or stop and start color blocks in this drapey bias garter wrap scarf. This scarf is worked by beginning with a garter tab that forms the base of the garter triangle that then sets the slanted garter stripes in place on each side of this triangle. The first set of stripes form the short side of the scarf and the second set of stripes forms the long side of the scarf. From the Dos Tierras Collection, a wonderful pattern collection to showcase this brilliant, soft, and bouncy yarn.
