Phoenix Print Garter Scarf
Make the perfect summer accessory with the pattern for the Phoenix Print Garter Scarf. This unusual scarf pattern is sure to make you the center of attention. Knit in a lightweight yarn, this scarf can be worn at any time of the year, even in summer. Beginners and experienced knitters alike will enjoy knitting this pattern. The trick to the two-toned scarf is that the second half of the scarf is knitted separately; it is picked up along the edge of the first half of the scarf.
