A nice fitting " one size fits most" type pattern, for men or women, boys and girls. Works up fast in what we call a " interrupted rib" pattern. Pattern gives stability, yet style and easy to knit. You can also use up scrap yarns and add stripes of color if you wish. Scarf measures 48 inches long. Can be longer or shorter as desired. Use a 16 inch circular needle size 9, and a few double points "only" for last few rows of top hat decrease. Other than those last few rounds, this is a very easy set to knit up! Worsted weight yarn.
