Pattern

Scarf is made in two sections worked from end to center back neck in order to maintain orientation of spike stitches.

Cut and rejoin colors A and B as instructed, leaving 6” tails for weaving in later. Do not cut MC until each half of scarf is completed. At each color change when picking up MC from rows below, strand it loosely up side of scarf.

When working spike stitches, keep stitches loose enough to match tension of rows below to avoid puckering.
