I love the look of variegated sockyarn, especially Wollmeise, in simple garter stitch. And I love a little something around my neck when it’s cold. So I invented this pretty and practical scarf-shawl-hybrid: It is shaped as a very wide triangle with 22.5-degree-angles at the tips (rather than the usual 45 degrees). It can be wrapped around several times and tightened with a knot – so it will not leave you, even if it’s only 22.5 degrees (Fahrenheit, that is!) outside. A scalloped edge adds a little unexpected frill, but is optional. A very relaxing but interesting knit to enjoy every inch of your beloved Wollmeise.
I used almost one entire skein (142 g) of Wollmeise (about 550 yards) so if you want to substitute yarns, you will need about 550-570 yards of yarn just to be sure. If you want to use less, you will have to work fewer repeats and end up with a smaller sized scarf.
