FIN­ISH­ING

Block to fin­ished mea­sure­ments.

Be­cause the stripes are worked along the length of the scarf, there are only a few color changes, mak­ing this scarf a great be­gin­ning stripe project. The wavy shell stitch pat­tern keeps each row in­ter­est­ing while cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful tex­ture.
