This striped scarf is a vintage Classic Elite pattern from our luxury division. It couldn’t be simpler. It’s worked in garter stitch beginning along the long edge. For variation, you could change the colors and widths of the stripes.
Though Blithe, our camel yarn, comes in some interesting marled combinations (read more about marled yarn), I chose solid colors for my scarf and reduced the stripe repeats to give the design an updated look.
This scarf is quick to knit, so if you’re looking for something manly (or not) for Valentine’s Day, get out your needles, find some Blithe, and get started.
Blithe 100% baby camel
Blithe is spun from the soft, warm undercoat of the two-humped Bactrian camel, not to be confused with the one-humped desert Dromedary camel. Bactrian camels live in cold climates; they originated in northern Afghanistan, and many live in Mongolia, tended by nomadic herders. In the winter, Bactrian camels grow a thick, warm coat to protect themselves from the cold.

The Blithe scarf is knitted in garter stitch and worked the long wayin other words, the scarf is cast on along its long edge and knitted across to the other long edge. Garter stitch makes an easy-to-knit scarf that’s squishy, reversible, and won’t roll in on the edges.
When you work a scarf the long way, you can make long stripes that go from one end of the scarf all the way to the other. You don’t have to weave in the ends when you change colors; use the ends as part of the fringeif desired.
Other reversible scarf stitches are: seed stitch, double seed stitch, and rib patterns.
