Tweedy Texture:

This Rice Stitch Scarf is a quick and easy knit that's full of texture, both from the stitch itself and the tweed yarn that's used. While it is a somewhat skinny scarf it's very long, so it should be able to keep anyone warm, no matter how tall they are.

This scarf would also be a great choice for either a male or female who needs to keep warm, depending on the color you choose.



20 stitches and 24 rows per 4 inches (5 stitches and 6 rows per inch) in Rice Stitch. Gauge is not critical.
