STRIPES SCARF, repeat 9" of 2 sts.




 the inspiration was a summer dress fabric, using Stripes 25% wool mix from Wilkinson's and a soft charcoal black merino wool
decided to change stitch after approx. 9" of each st, and repeat until it's long enough for me.
First row of 'v' sts, needs to be the traditional v st. with the ch 1 between the 2 dc, or its too tight using this merino yarn. 
Other wise i'm just repeating the 2 st, pattern every 9"




 I like my scarves long so aiming for around 6' and i will add the weight of yarn when its completed
