Paradigm Shift

This easily customizable scarf was born of the necessity to make a quick, easy yet not boring garter based scarf. I used a faux-lace stitch I had used in a number of projects before and mixed it up with a non-criss-crossed version of itself. The result is a comfy, warm and airy scarf to get you through those unusually chilly spring mornings.

Crochet Hook or Darning Needle to weave in the ends.
