Both versions of this
pattern use the same
stitch, but the overall
effect is quite different.
The scarf (opposite,
right) is knit the short
way, making the look
more masculine and the
design begins to take
shape quickly. The wrap
(opposite, left) requires
knitting rows the long
way, and you won’t begin
to see the pattern emerge
until you’ve completed
an inch or so. Either way,
don’t be tempted to use
smaller needles than
called for. Larger needles
are necessary to keep
this stitch from becoming
too tight.

MAKE IT MORE
NEUTRAL
Men are often willing to
wear a scarf with more
color than they might
wear otherwise. Try 3303
Spumoni (top), 3105 Lava
(middle), or 3119 Adobe
(bottom). Continue to work
the short way for a man’s
scarf and the long way for
a more feminine look.
