Notes ...
Assembly

This scarf is started by joining 4 motifs to each other; creating the centerline of the scarf. Once the centerline is created, the scarf is worked in turning rows from each side of the centerline to create a beautiful scarf that has an invisible seam. To increase or decrease the width of the scarf simply add or subtract motifs as desired.
