Pin-Stripe Scarf Knit Pattern

Pin-Stripe Knit Scarf

I don’t know about you, but I usually have several projects on the go.  At least one of them needs to be an easy knit that doesn’t require too much concentration, so that I have an excuse to relax and watch TV or a movie and keep my hands busy at the same time.  The Pin-Stripe Scarf is one of those patterns.
Elmarie knitted up this beautiful scarf, which can easily be used as a shawl or wrap too, and we’ve called it our Pin Stripe Scarf, although clearly it’s a lot more colourful than the standard pin-stripe suit!
It’s a great pattern for a beginner also as it’s not much more than plain and purl and learning to use different colours
