Wheatsheaf Scarf

Big sky country; baking bread: the humble sheaf of wheat symbolizes comfort and home. This stranded wheat motif is suitable for any gender.

This scarf is knit as an open tube with ribbing on each end.

I chose Backwards Loop Cast On for this project because it stays tidy when combined with ribbing while having the right stretchiness. Interlock Bind Off is a close visual match to Backwards Loop. If you prefer, try a Tubular Cast On and Tubular Bind Off.
