This extra-long garter stitch scarf makes a great gift for anyone on your holiday list. Make it in the 3-colour stripe pattern shown here, or pick your favourite colours and make up a stripe pattern of your own. For more conservative types, you can also make the scarf in a single colour.
The sample scarf was made using Katia Big Merino, a machine-washable wool/acrylic blend. For the stripe pattern shown, you will need 2 balls of Pistachio (18), 1 ball of Loden (17), and one ball of Mink (20) (This combination will leave you with enough leftover yarn to make the Garter Hat!). If you are creating your own stripe pattern you will need 3 balls of yarn in total.
The scarf is knit flat on a 12mm needle.
