I know its summer, so scarves are probably the last thing on your mind, but I wanted to share this pattern. I designed this using a stitch pattern from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury of Knit Patterns. The best thing out this pattern is that it folds up, accordian style, around the neck and flares out at the bottom. I used a handspun yarn I bought at this sheep farm/weaving co-op in New Mexico. Any heavy worsted or chunky yarn would work, something with a little variability in color, like Manos de Uruguay would be gorgeous.
