Pattern details are incorrect, cast on should be only 36 stitches, and the brackets need to be ignored on row 3 and 7, you my be better getting the copy direct from redheart.com

I ADORE the texture in this scarf. It's so beautifully designed. I bet my mom would love it.

This is a beautiful wavy pattern on this scarf. It gives it quite a distinctive look. This is definitely not just another boring looking scarf. Has anyone tried it with a sporty yarn instead of the bulky or chunky yarn that is called for? I'm wondering how it would turn out that way.

This is a gorgeous pattern! I think I'll make it a little bit thinner by CO fewer stitches or using smaller needles, and I think I'll make it an infinity scarf! I love infinity scarves )
