This scarf is a long, squishy, textured hug. It was the inspiration of my friend, Yuh-Chi and is named for her. She saw a scarf that she really liked and, not being a knitter, begged a knitter (that’s me) to make one for her.
This was my take on that pattern. I wanted it to have some garter bands, stockinette bands, and lace. I wanted it to be long and gracious, but also a little feminine.
This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between.
Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
