The Coastal Breeze Knitted Scarf was inspired from the Old Shale stitch. When I saw this stitch for the first time, it immediately spoke to me and I knew right away that this had to be a scarf that I could wear to the beach. I didn’t want anything too long or too heavy, so the Coastal Breeze Knitted Scarf was born. I chose to use cotton yarn because I love the weight and the drape, as well as how the stitches open up after blocking.
This is a beginning friendly pattern that only looks complicated. It has a 4 row repeat and can be adjusted to be made thicker by adding in increments of 18 stitches. To help you keep track of rows more easily, I’m attaching a checklist guide for you (I use these for every pattern that I work on). Enjoy!!
