Snowchaser uses slipped stitches to create a subtle texture that is pleasing on both sides of the fabric. The scarf is worked from side to side to create long stripes that follow the pattern repeats. There is a garter stitch selvedge at each end, along which you add an attached I-cord edging once the main body of the scarf is finished. This pattern uses knit, purl, and slipped stitches, with the pattern worked on right side rows only. The stitch pattern is both charted and written, and includes instructions on adjusting for different lengths and gauges.

About the Yarn
O-Wool Local is a loosely spun singles yarn with lots of drape from both the structure and the alpaca content. It’s spun with a ‘Z’ twist, so if you knit English style (throwing), as I do, the yarn opens up a bit as you knit. (Most plied knitting yarn is plied with an ‘S’ twist.) The resulting fabric is soft, light, and drapey. This stitch pattern works with a range of yarns (and didn’t work with a few that surprised me), so if you’re using a different yarn for your project, look for a worsted weight yarn that gives you a fabric you like in the stitch pattern. Slipped stitch patterns can change gauge and appearance quite a bit with blocking, so it’s worth taking the time to block your swatch before deciding.
