This scarf is really simple and
easy -- but the wavy ribs cause the edges
of the scarf to curve in and out, making it look more
complicated than it
is. If you can knit and purl, you can make this scarf
--but you'd better
use a row counter if you know what's good for you.
I love Cascade 220 and mostly use
it for felting projects. When this
color came into the LYS, I grabbed it -- and decided
that what I really needed was a pink scarf.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Smith lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Taught in the "fake it 'til you make it"
school of knitting, Sarah prefers to knit without
a pattern and felt a little insulted having
to use a row counter.
