IMG_5356Do you find making scarfs boring? Then may be it is about time to try a new technique.
You don’t have to start from the beginning, the end or the middle, but from the side.
The advantage of this approach would be appreciated if worked in lace because it allows stitches on both limbs of the scarf to flow easily in the same directions.
The pattern utilizes 1×1 rib to simplify the method, but you may use the Ring & Limbs idea of this pattern for any lace pattern you wish to try.
The featured scarf is worked using Worsted Weight yarn and size G Hook, but you can use any weight you desire with its compatible hook.

How To Customize Your Scarf:
You can make your scarf as wide and as long as you wish. Just consider proportions.
The Short Limb is about 1/3 the Long Limb.
The Number of stitches at the beginning of the Ring is equal to number of stitches at the beginning of each Limb.
The number of rounds in the Ring is about 1/3 the number of rows in short limb.
