Triple Shift Scarf Pattern
This tri-colored, color block scarf uses four different design elements to create a fun and unique color mashup. The rich texture is achieved by using a combination of garter stitches, stockinette, and eyelet lace.
You will be using circular needles to knit a long tube that you will lay flat at the end and seam both openings closed. As a result, the scarf will be double-layered, and identical on both sides. A final blocking will give the scarf nice, crisp edges.
18 sts and 24 rows make a 4” (10cm) square in stockinette stitch, worked flat, AFTER blocking
84” (215 cm) long and 9.5” (24 cm) wide

Note: the yardage for all three colors will be very close to equal
