Pattern Notes

You can try other weights of yarn, adding stitches for the thinner ones or removing stitches for the bigger ones.

The drop stitch looks great with super chunky yarn (weight #6): cast on 18 stitches.

You can make a straight scarf of the desired length with the same pattern. Knit 4 more rows (Row 1) at the beginning and end of the scarf for a more solid finish. You can also add fringes.
